MSc Business Engineering in Urban Mobility
Why study Business Engineering in Urban Mobility at the EIT Urban Mobility Master School?
In a world where urbanization is on the rise and sustainability is paramount, the demand for innovative solutions in urban mobility is greater than ever before. The programme Business Engineering in Urban Mobility offers a transformative learning experience to become a leader in one of the most critical and dynamic fields of the 21st century. In particular, the programme focuses on providing conceptual knowledge, methods, and project-based experience in innovating and transforming business models in the context of urban mobility. The scope is interdisciplinary and covers all modes of urban and regional transport for personal travel as well as goods and logistics. The programme provides an understanding of business perspectives in the evolving urban mobility landscape, how to design user-centric and sustainable solutions that enhance the urban mobility experience and how the power of data can be used to make informed decisions in optimizing urban mobility systems and supply chains. Through the interdisciplinary approach of the programme, students will be equipped with a comprehensive understanding of technology mixed with extensive competencies in the field of management.
How is the programme structured?
All programmes at the EIT Urban Mobility Master School have a unique study path:
- 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 recognised Master of Science degrees, from each of the two 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 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 specialised courses in both technical content as well as 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. 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 have the know-how to start your own business or conduct rigorous research.
