Design and Mobility (B.A.)
Apply for the new Design & Mobility BA course at the Selb location from May!
The bachelor degree course Design & Mobility strives for new answers to a basic human need: mobility. An important branch of the economy is on the move; Far-reaching changes are creating completely new forms of mobility. Digital tools make it possible to redesign the real world.
The projects to be worked on in the semesters form the red thread through the course, deal with topics and tasks of various kinds and partly take place as cooperation with partners from industry.
Other content taught during the course includes representation and communication through hand drawing, working with computers in 2D and 3D, the basics of virtual reality, the production of models in classic clay model construction and 3D printing, teaching and application theoretical knowledge about ergonomics, aerodynamics, the production of vehicles, materials and their use, ecology and sustainability and of course the technical basics of vehicle construction.

Content of the course
The focus and goal of the course is the training of young designers who want to face the creative and technical challenges of future mobility in their professional lives.
Thematically, the study program spans a wide range from classic means of transport such as the automobile, muscle- and motor-driven two- and three-wheelers, aircraft and watercraft to the wide field of new forms of mobility tools and their intermodality to concepts for the redesign of infrastructure and scenarios of the mobile life.
The training program is designed to train and apply various contact points between design and engineering. The study program contains both creative and technical subjects. Graduates should be able to communicate and interact between disciplines in an industrial environment and in self-employment, and thus be able to work creatively and successfully in heterogeneous project teams and make a valuable contribution to shaping the mobility requirements of the future.
