Urban Mobility Master

You are here

The Master's Degree in Urban Mobility aims to improve urban mobility in our cities and around the world, which requires not only the improvement of technical infrastructure (towards an intelligent transport infrastructure, internet of things, etc.), but also holistic planning, execution and operation. Urban transformation requires that most stakeholders interact and understand the perspectives of others to make this improvement effective. Thus, this programme allows professionals from different engineering profiles to be trained, providing specific skills in the sector, and knowledge and deepening in transportation operations, mobility services, data science, ICT and energy technologies for sustainable mobility. Also, the programme provides the fundamental tools of entrepreneurship and innovation to face the rapid transformation of the global society.

The master’s degree in Urban Mobility is offered as an EIT Urban Mobility Master School programme or as a local master programme at UPC-BarcelonaTech.

This master's degree offers two intensifications (or tracks): Sustainable Urban Mobility Transitions (SUMT) and Smart Mobility Data Science and Analytics (SMDSA). The SUMT intensification is offered by the Barcelona School of Civil Engineering, while the SMDA intensification is offered by the Barcelona School of Informatics. The information available in the other sections of this website refers to the SMDA intensification.
