What will you learn?

Mobility deals with increasingly complex flows of people and goods in the networked city and region. With different technologies, lifestyles and spatial structures, the demand side is always changing. On the supply side, services become more flexible and the physical infrastructure is used more efficiently. This Master's specialisation will look into various integrated mobility systems or transport modes at different spatial scales. Furthermore, the specialisation looks at innovations for strategic spatial planning at the level of integrated city regions, and how mobility and transportation fit in these innovations.
