DescriptionThe MSc programme in Mobility & Urban Studies is for students motivated to gain the technical skills associated with engineering as well as the theoretical based reflection of social science to understand, design or plan mobility in and around cities. In short, to become a “reflecting technologist” that approaches mobilities as more than simply movement and within it offers a cross-disciplinary mobility-profession based on the new mobilities turn.
Mobility & Urban studies integrates the diverse challenges that are related to an increasing physical mobility (traffic and transportation by car, plane or train alike), increased use of virtual mobility (mobile phones and smart transport systems), increasing social mobility (tourism and migration) and environmentally friendly and sustainable modes of transportation (e.g. bicycle cultures or bike lanes in Copenhagen).
The Mobilities & Urban Studies programme enables graduates to examine, integrate and design new solutions related to technological, environmental and urban planning challenges, as well as economic, organizational, political, and social strategies - all related to the field of mobilities.
You are able to undertake an internship or do an external study on 3rd semester. Read more about this possibility.
