The provision and organization of mobility for persons and goods are one of the basic requirements for a working economy. Dealing with traffic in this regard requires multidisciplinary capabilities, which are often under-represented in conventional engineering courses.

In view of this, it is our responsibility to combine the benefits offered by the diverse range of courses available at our university in the fields of road construction, transportation planning, traffic engineering, automotive engineering, and transport economics in the form of a high-quality academic qualification that is of use to interested students. Very few German cities have played such a significant role in the history of transport as Nuremberg. Our university is one of the oldest universities in Germany with a technical focus and was founded by Johannes Scharrer, who also established the first railway line in Germany, which ran from Nuremberg to Fürth.
