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.
Master's programme in Urban Mobility is a European double degree programme. It is implemented jointly by leading European universities. The partners for 2020-2021 are Aalto, KTH, UPC and TU/e. The two-year Master's programme is completed by studying at two of these universities, both eventually awarding a Master's degree to their graduates. The students must study their first year and second year in different universities.
At Aalto University, The Master’s Programme in Urban Mobility is organized by the School of Engineering. Aalto University offers one major within the programme in academic year 2020–2021:
- Sustainable Urban Mobility Transitions (SUMT)
Innovation & Entrepreneurship for Urban Mobility minor is included to the programme.
