MOBILITY - of people, goods, and information

Understanding the worldwide flow of people, goods and information is important in today's globalized world. Information influences the life of the individual an the cohesion of societies and cultures in many different ways. Expertise of different disciplines, such as computer science, communication technology, logistics, mathematics and psychology will be combined in new solutions.

Study programs

Computer Science (BSC)

The Computer Science program at Jacobs University focuses on understanding these principles and their application in practice. In addition to courses dealing with core competencies (programming, software engineering, foundations of computer science), you will be covering mathematics (calculus, linear algebra, and statistics) and take courses in engineering and sciences whilst also conducting guided research.


Electrical and Computer Engineering (BSc)

The extensive developments in microelectronics over recent decades have triggered a digital revolution with computers as the driving force. While we still think of a computer as a desktop or a laptop, digital computing and digital signal processing have become vital for many of the products in our everyday life such as cars, mobile phones, tablets, cameras, household appliances, etc. more. The Electrical and Computer Engineering program focuses on the areas of communications, digital signal processing and control, including the enabling digital processing elements and their programming.


Industrial Engineering & Management (BSc)

The B.Sc. Industrial Engineering & Management (IEM) program deals with both the creation and the management of systems that integrate people, materials and energy in productive ways. It covers topics such as process engineering, operations research, supply chain management, engineering design, logistics, project management, and others. During their studies at Jacobs University, students are equipped with the essentials of both the management and the engineering business functions and thus they are prepared for successful careers in industry.


Intelligent Mobile Systems (BSc)

This program covers engineering methods and technologies relevant in making artificial mobile systems independent of permanent human supervision, i.e., that enable mobile systems to autonomous intelligent operations. Application areas include the automotive and transport industries, robotics and automation, communication technologies, marine technology, and logistics. The program also includes transdisciplinary aspects related to the study of processes that enable mobility in intelligent natural systems. Hands-on experience with technical systems and methods in state-of-the art labs are part of the program.


Mathematics (BSc)

Mathematics often finds intriguing practical applications in surprising areas: number theory is used in cryptography, dynamical systems and wavelets are successfully employed in engineering, and mathematical game theory was the basis for economic research that’s been awarded a Nobel prize. The program also includes elements of applied and computational mathematics. Math students at Jacobs University participate in research groups together with graduate students and faculty, and many have even written research articles.
The Jacobs Mathematics program was highly ranked in the recent CHE RANKING 2015.


Data Engineering (MSc)

Big data has turned out to have giant potential, but poses major challenges at the same time. On the one hand, big data is driving the next stage of technological innovation and scientific discovery. On the other hand, the global volume of data is growing at a pace which seems to be hard to control.
Data engineering is an emerging profession concerned with big data approaches to data acquisition, data management and data analysis. Providing you with up-to-date knowledge and cutting-edge computational tools, data engineering has everything that it takes to master the era of big data.


Supply Chain Engineering & Management (MSc)

The program educates and trains students to deal with complex problems, using engineering and management skills. While the Bachelor degree program in Industrial Engineering and Management at Jacobs University mainly focuses on understanding logistics processes, the graduate degree program concentrates on describing, analyzing and designing logistics systems. The overarching aim is to provide the students with tools and insights on how high-performance and robust global logistics systems can be built and sustainably maintained.
