Overview

Why study Sustainable Urban Mobility Transitions at the EIT Urban Mobility Master School ?

The world’s cities are changing, but not enough. New technology, business models, and global priorities are transforming the way we get around, and regional planners and urban engineers are under pressure to prepare for and exploit these transformations to help bring about an urban environment that consumes fewer scarce resources, contributes less to climate change, and provides more liveable neighbourhoods and workplaces. 

To accomplish this requires competence beyond the traditional urban planning and civil engineering disciplines, along with entrepreneurial skills to drive change that puts innovations into practice.

How is the programme structured?

  • Graduating students will be awarded two master’s degrees, one from each of those universities. Moreover, the programme is designed so that students may attain the qualifications for a certificate awarded by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology.
  • During the first-year studies, students will be given an introduction to Innovation and Entrepreneurship and participate in an extended Challenge Project. During the same year, students will acquire essential technical skills for working with urban mobility challenges.
  • Between the first and second year, students will participate in a Summer School applying new skills to two different cities located in Europe.
  • In the second year, students will choose from several more specialised courses in both technical content and innovation and entrepreneurship. Students will also participate in a shorter challenge project that includes an internship at a company or organisation working to meet urban mobility challenges.
  • Finally, also in the second year, students will carry out their own master thesis work, combining and demonstrating their full set of technical and entrepreneurial skills.
