Advanced Mobility Implementing high-tech mobility solutions
Get yourself acquainted with the self driving car and create business opportunities for it with the HAN Automotive minor Advanced Mobility!
The partially or fully self driving car is on its way to the market. New players emerge in the car business like Google, Apple and Tesla provoke the established brands by developing self driving techniques of their own. The question arises however who is going to buy these cars? Which technique creates the most value for which costumer? What are the technical (im)possibilities when considering full scale deployment?
In the HAN minor Advanced Mobility answers will be sought to these questions. With fellow students in your project team you’ll research the commercial possibilities of fully connected cars and their environment. You will work with real life case studies provided by partnering companies in the fiels of safety, logistics, traffic and leasing. Considering the international character of the automotive branche the tuition will be in English. In short, a real high tech commercial challenge for students with ambition!
The main aim of this minor is to develop students in their skills in implementing innovative techniques in order to make mobility more efficient and durable. The techniques in question will focus on high-tech systems which can make interaction possible between the vehicles, the drivers and their surroundings. ICT plays an important part by making the connections and data analysis possible to influence this mobility.
The following subjects will be lectured in the minor:
- Business Strategy Concept
- Mapping Methods
- Innovative business models
Management & Organization:
- Quality control by using the stage-gate model
- Legal issues
- Purchasing, logistics and supply chain management
- Modular manufacturing methods
- Implementation (change)management
- ICT chain management
- Mobility Control Systems (IVHS)
- Human-machine interface systems
- Research skills
- Communication skills (English language, dealing with different business cultures and negotiation skills)
- Competitive attitude and empathic ability
Mobility processes are by definition multi stakeholder processes and therefore inherently complex. In the minor students will work in project teams on real life assignments. Each team will have its own specific assignment which are acquired at our partner companies and fit nicely into the research areas of our automotive lectureship (research groups mobility technology and mechatronics).
Block exchange course
This exchange course is offered once a year in a block during a semester (September - January).
This also is a specialisation exchange course. This means it enables you to further deepen your skills and knowledge within your own profession (professional profile).
The learning outcomes listed below will help you decide whether this exchange course matches your personal goals.
At the end of the minor the student:
1. Carries out ‘’multi stakeholder’’ feasability studies, as member of a team implementing high tech innovations in order to make mobility more durable and efficient;
2. Determines a product/service architecture in order to maximize customer value;
3. Gives a strategic, modular production and purchasing advice and analyses possible partnerships in the supply chain;
4. Designs and implements a control system strategy to manage mobility processes and automotive systems.
Furthermore the student will have to show a competitive attitude and empathic ability in order to operate in different professional business cultures.
The following competences will be developed:

Subscribe? Good to know!
For popular minors a draw takes place 3 to 4 weeks after the opening, if there are at that time more subscribers than available places. For the minors with places still available applies until the closing of the subscription period: Once a minor is full, it is closed!
In addition, if the number of subscribers after three weeks is below the norm; this minor may possibly be withdrawn. So if you are interested, sign up immediately!
Subscribe in time!
Note: For HAN students it means that, in case of cancellation of the first choice AFTER the period of decision (this takes about three weeks) they may re-subscribe for the still available minors.
Even then: Once a minor is full, it is closed!
A good overview of the HAN minors can be found in the minors app! The app is accessible via: http://www.minoren-han.nl/
An exchange course will be of most benefit to you if it complements your study and/or your professional profile, is at an appropriate level and does not overlap with your major.
Students of the bachelor of Automotive (Technical Commercial variant) and Technical Business Administration.
