Program description

MSc Sustainable Urban Mobility Transitions 

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.

For applicants to Autumn 2020, you can start and end the programme in one of four universities. Mobility from one university to another between Year 1 and Year 2 is compulsory.

  • Aalto University, Helsinki
  • KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm
  • Technological University of Eindhoven
  • UPC Barcelona Tech

Admission requirements

Who can apply?

To qualify for admission you should have a Bachelor of Science or be in your last year of studies of:

  • Engineering, Information Science, Computer Science, Statistics or Geoinformation Technology.
  • In addition, the Sustainable Urban Mobility Transitions program welcomes applicants with a BSc in Urban Planning, Geography, or Economics, provided they have a proven track record in programming, calculus, linear algebra, and mathematical statistics.

If you have a bachelor’s degree that differs from our recommended degrees, you are still welcome to apply by explaining how your academic and professional background suits the specific program you are interested in.

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.
  • Graduating students will be awarded two master’s degrees, one from each of those 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 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.

Tuition fees

Tuition fees are payable per semester (8 000 Euro for non-EU citizens and 2 000 Euro for EU citizens per semester).
