Course content

Mobility deals with increasingly complex flows of people and goods in the networked city and region. The demand side of mobility is changing everyday with differentiated lifestyles, changes in technology and new evolving spatial structures. The supply side is increasingly being focused on flexible services and better utilisation of physical infrastructure for which transport management will be essential. An integrated view and strategy to enable future mobility is a challenging task.

The Ministry for Infrastructure and Environment requires, for instance, integrated agendas to frame future infrastructure development. This Master's specialisation will deal with such issues, looking into different integrated mobility systems or transport modes at different spatial scales. It will also look into innovative new practices and strategies to provide mobility options for various population segments.

Finally, It will address the challenge, how to integrate the mobility and transport aspects into innovative new concepts for strategic spatial planning at the level of integrated city regions.
