Why study Advanced Mobility Services at the EIT Urban Mobility Master School?
The mobility challenges generated by rapid urbanization, e-commerce activities providing door to door deliveries, as well as the urgent need for more sustainable transport systems requires the creation and development of innovative urban mobility solutions for people and goods. Trends such as Mobility as a Service, Logistic as a Service, Vehicle Sharing, Internet of Things, and Micro mobility are some of the developments that have the potential to radically reshape our urban systems and create more livable and safer cities.
This program takes a holistic approach to study, designing, and implementing advanced mobility services by integrating technical expertise with innovative approaches and entrepreneurial skills so that graduates have the tools they need to implement new ideas and shape a more sustainable urban future.
Who can apply?
Candidates should have a solid foundation in quantitative, technical, and business and/or economics methods as demonstrated by a bachelor’s degree in Industrial Engineering or Information engineering.
Additionally, the Advanced Mobility Services program also welcomes applicants with a technical degree (any other engineering degree, mathematics, physics, statistics, information science) that can also prove 35 ECTS in business and/or economics.
How is the program structured?
All programs at the EIT Urban Mobility Master School follow the same scheme:
- Students study one year each at two different universities–the “entry” university and the “exit” university. All options are located at a leading university in Europe in the field of urban mobility.
- Graduating students will be awarded two officially recognized Master of Science degrees, from each of the two universities. Moreover, the program 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 introduced 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 within Europe.
- In the second year, students will choose from several more specialized 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 organization working to meet urban mobility challenges. To complete their degree, in the second year, students will carry out an independent master thesis, combining and demonstrating their full set of technical and entrepreneurial skills.
- You will have a wide range of career opportunities, within the public and private sector, as well as the business know-how to start your own business or conduct rigorous research.
