Baden-Wuerttemberg’s strong automotive and
automotive supply industry has a high demand
for qualified employees in the most diverse of
professions, now and in the future. After all,
competent and motivated employees, people
with strong commitment and ideas, are the
ones that make Baden-Wuerttemberg a world
leader in sustainable mobility.
All along the value-adding chain – from re-
search and development to production, sales,
after-sales and recycling – scientists, social
scientists, engineers, business experts, skilled
workers, craftspeople and many other profes-
sions are required. They will need the proper
skills and competencies in sustainable mobil-
ity and be able to put them into practice. Ed-
ucation and qualification are the cornerstones
in the development of future-proof technolo-
gies. In its second report, the ‘National Plat-
form for Electric Mobility’, a consulting board
for the federal German government comprised
of experts from industry, politics, science, as-
sociations and labour unions, emphasised the
significance of university education and occu-
pational training.
Aligning the educational programmes of uni-
versities and universities of applied sciences
to the needs of industry is essential for Ger-
many and especially Baden-Wuerttemberg to
continue their leadership role in sustainable
mobility. Occupational training programmes
that train and qualify workers are equally im-
portant to fulfil these new requirements.
A core element of qualification is the transfer
of a thorough understanding of the complex
system of sustainable mobility (see Figure 1).
This is best achieved by involving an interdisci-
plinary linkage of engineering and non-techno-
logical competencies (for example, economics).
Baden-Wuerttemberg’s diverse educational
system (comprising universities, universities of
applied sciences, cooperative state universities)
meets the most diverse requirements of industry.
Figure 3 shows the distribution of academic pro-
grammes for sustainable mobility in Germany. Of
equal relevance are the advanced training pro-
grammes for persons in employment.
