About this program

Master of Mobility and Supply Chain Engineering

Engineers keep our society mobile and our supply chains vital. Consider the increase in self-driving cars or e-commerce: we live in a dynamic logistics machine. Our society demands engineers who are ambitious, creative, analytical and open-minded: those who fully understand the many technological possibilities to make mobility and supply chains cleaner, safer, more reliable, and more efficient than ever before.

As a graduate of the Master in Mobility & Supply Chain Engineering, you put Intelligent Transport Systems into optimal use. You analyse and bring systematic innovation to accessibility and sustainability (environment) aspects of the transport system. For example by redesigning logistic processes of hospitals, offering out-of-the-box solutions for public transport operators who cooperate with trendy firms (Google, Uber, Tesla, ...), developing tools so that shared bike systems and electric cars can work.

As a graduate, you can also analyse existing transport networks in response to new players, different prices and new technologies like 3D printing. Your skills will allow you to invent new ways of organising for example e-commerce, warehouses, drones, robots.
