All programmes at the EIT Urban Mobility Master School have a unique study path: students study at two different universities, one year at each of them, namely 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 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, during the second year, students will carry out an independent master thesis, combining and demonstrating their full set of technical and entrepreneurial skills.

EIT Master structure (EIT Urban Mobility Master School)

During the 1st year, students must enrol at least 20 ECTS from the Innovation & entrepreneurship group, and 10 ECTS from the Relevant Elective group belonging to the track of choice (Multivariant Analysis and Data Management for Transportation).

During the fall semester of the second year, students must enrol at least 7 ECTS (EIT's students) or 10 ECTS (local students) from the Innovation & Entrepreneurship group (at least one of them must be worth 5 ECTS), and from 15 to 20 ECTS from the Relevant Elective group belonging to the track of choice. Globally, all elective courses have to account for 27 ECTS (EIT students) or 30 ECTS (local students) to pass the year.

The following is the presentation of the structure of the SMDSA track study plan for the first (semesters 1 and 2) and second (semesters 3 and 4) year:
