Program description

MSc Innovative Mobility Technology

Increasing urbanization is challenging cities across the world in how to move people and goods efficiently and sustainably. To address such challenges, engineers and manufacturers can no longer design isolated machines. The vehicles of the future must communicate with each other, understand their built environment, and most importantly, interact with and be responsive to people. Future cities need professionals that understand such challenges and have the vision to anticipate these developments.

The Innovative Mobility Technology (IMT) Master is a unique study program that prepares graduates to design and develop user-centred future mobility tools and devices, and to assess their feasibility and sustainability at both the user and system level. The program focuses on understanding different applications of technological developments in various vehicle typologies and urban infrastructure. Through the program, students will work with critical real-world challenges and learn how to develop multidisciplinary solutions to complex problems. The IMT program allows students to focus on adopting innovative products and services, including working with human-centred technologies, efficient and green energy solutions, and electronics and communication technologies, as well as sensors, wired and wireless network standards, and machine learning and artificial intelligence solutions. Additionally, it provides a wide range of skills in entrepreneurship and innovation to face the rapid transformations in our globalized society.

Program content

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.
  • During the first-year studies, students will be introduced 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 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. 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.
