Baden-Wurttemberg universities have largest studies offer sustainable mobility Baden-Wurttemberg universities are fit for electric mobility. Nationwide find here prospective students the widest range on the topic of sustainable mobility,”Science Minister Theresia Bauer of one of the Central results of a Germany-wide analysis is summarized to the academic qualification in the field of sustainable mobility. The Baden-Wurttemberg offering characterized in particular by, that not only technical aspects in the training are anchored, but that also the competence of the system forms a focal point in many courses. Just the transformation towards electric mobility offers the opportunity to grasp the concept of innovation, Bauer reiterated at a press conference at the Centre for virtual engineering of the Fraunhofer IAO. In its capacity as Chairman of the Board of mobile BW stressed it: how we need technical innovations, we need new answers, which Transport concepts can find social acceptance. The system of electric mobility is complex. For sustainable mobility solutions, it is essential to deal with socio-scientific issues in addition to technical BW’s Managing Director Franz Loogen confirmed mobile.
Sustainable mobility is a project, which touches various topics, here is therefore required interdisciplinarity,”added Prof. Dr. Wilhelm Bauer, Deputy Head of the Fraunhofer IAO. System understanding and interdisciplinarity are asked for in the economy generally, Germany has a highly differentiated qualification offer for sustainable mobility, which wise however large regional differences. Apart from Baden-Wurttemberg at the top also North Rhine-Westphalia and Bavaria can boast a dense range.
The proximity to the automobile industry play an enabling role. The study shows that is the diversity of the Baden-Wurttemberg University landscape as a major competitive advantage because the educational system produces many university graduates both practice-oriented graduates of other high school, noted farmer. The comprehensive study of the academic education in the field of sustainable mobility, where nationwide more than 600 courses were compared and company were interviewed directly, allows a differentiated analysis. The study, Baden-Wurttemberg wants also his contribution to the work of national platform electric mobility afford to advance sustainable science policy and innovations in Germany. The study had shown that despite generally sufficient education involvement in some key areas even more should be next, Minister Bauer. These include the battery storage, energy systems, overall vehicle concepts/integration and load management and fuel cell technology. Here, the companies make up a rising need for personnel. The offer should specifically be developed further “, affirms Loogen. Especially in the further education offers at universities after first studying the study sees further potential for expansion. Match supply and demand In the area of sustainable mobility, there is a wide variety of courses. To enable a better orientation for prospective students, the scientists recommend to create more transparency. Often find it difficult prospective, to identify relevant courses for themselves, although there is a wide range. Both companies want fast, reliable information on where you can find candidates with the required skills, makes it clear Managing Director Franz Loogen relevance mobile BW.
