Students for Future Mobility


Are you interested in topics related to the future of mobility in an international context? With Students for Future Mobility, TUM offers two different hands-on projects in the field of mobility for students from different disciplines to complement their individual studies.


Students for Future Mobility creates a common framework for international student projects with a focus on mobility at TUM. With the two projects Global Drive and euMOVE, Students for Future Mobility offers students the unique opportunity to work in interdisciplinary teams, to integrate a project-related stay abroad into their studies and to use it for their research interests. The aim is to find and test new approaches to challenges in the field of mobility by researching new innovations for the future of mobility. The stay abroad is intended to promote international scientific exchange as well as the establishment of a network of experts.

The projects are planned for a duration of 6 months and are associated with a stay abroad of approximately 2 weeks. We are looking for students in the advanced stages of their studies who, in the best case, can combine the project offered here with their final thesis.

Within the framework of Students for Future Mobility, students can choose between two projects with a different thematic focus and technical relevance: Global Drive and euMOVE.



GlobalDrive facilitates an interdisciplinary exchange with partner universities within and outside the EU in the context of a collaborative project.

Students research sustainable solutions for real problems as part of their thesis (master's/study/bachelor's thesis). The project phase starts with a fully financed two-week stay abroad in the respective partner country and ends with an official final presentation together with the partners in Germany.

In particular, the international exchange and the active cooperation with students of the partner universities form a central part of the GlobalDrive program.


As part of the euMOVE project, teams of students are to investigate and compare urban mobility in European regions. The goal is to create a joint report that analyzes the regions and cities studied and evaluates the applicability of the innovations discovered to the Munich metropolitan region.

In a first phase, this status quo is to be determined in Munich. In the beginning of the first phase, kickoff-days take place at university together with the chair supervisors and all team members.

In a second phase, a distinct European area is set into focus for every team and several cities of that region can be visited to gather live-information (end of June / beginning of July 2022). During the third phase, the collected information of all teams is to be analyzed and compiled into an European mobility report. This report is presented at a event of larger scale (end of September 2022).
