About the Programme
Why study Innovative Mobility Technology at the EIT Urban Mobility Master School?
Increasing urbanization is challenging cities across the world in how to move people and goods efficiently and sustainably. To address such challenges, engineers and manufacturers can no longer design isolated machines. The vehicles of the future must communicate with each other, understand their built environment, and most importantly, interact with and be responsive to people. Future cities need professionals that understand such challenges and have the vision to anticipate these developments.
The Innovative Mobility Technology (IMT) Master is a unique study programme that prepares graduates to design and develop user-centred future mobility tools and devices, and to assess their feasibility and sustainability at both the user and system level. The programme focuses on understanding different applications of technological developments in various vehicle typologies and urban infrastructure.
Through the programme, students will work with critical real-world challenges and learn how to develop multidisciplinary solutions to complex problems. The IMT programme allows students to focus on adopting innovative products and services, including working with human-centred technologies, efficient and green energy solutions, and electronics and communication technologies, as well as sensors, wired and wireless network standards, and machine learning and artificial intelligence solutions. Additionally, it provides a wide range of skills in entrepreneurship and innovation to face the rapid transformations in our globalized society.
Where can I study Innovative Mobility Technology?
The available universities for the Innovative Mobility Technology programme are:
- Aalto University, Espoo, Finland
- Polytechnic University of Catalonia (UPC), Barcelona, Spain
- Politecnico di Milano, Milan, Italy
What are the career opportunities?
You will have the opportunity to develop a career as a vehicle and mobility system designer and engineer, a technology innovator, a mobility infrastructure designer, an HMI engineer, an ITS system architect, an X2X connectivity system engineer, and a system power engineer, among others.
After the programme, you will be able to find employment opportunities worldwide, in leading positions and multidisciplinary teams, for a range of private companies, including the automotive sector, public institutions in cities and metropolitan regions, and start-ups that require high-level technological and system competences.
The Innovative Mobility Technology Programme welcomes applicants that hold a B.Sc. degree in Engineering, Information Science or Computer Science with at least 20 ECTS in maths or physics and 10 ECTS in information science or programming.

Applicants must have completed a Bachelor’s degree encompassing a minimum of 180 ECTS credits or equivalent academic qualifications from an internationally recognized university.
Students in their final year of undergraduate education may also apply and if qualified, receive a conditional acceptance.
If you have not completed your studies, please include a written statement from the degree administration office (or equivalent department), confirming that you are enrolled in the final year of your education and giving your expected completion date – which should be before the start of the Master's programme.
If you receive a conditional offer, you should present your degree certificate to your entry university before enrollment at the latest. Applicants following longer technical programmes and who have completed courses equivalent to an amount of 180 ECTS, will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
The world’s cities are undergoing a massive transformation in how they function, how people and goods move, and how the city and its services are designed and managed to support such changes. This transformation is being driven by new technologies, by new industrial actors, and by new priorities to our sustainability goals.
To adapt to and to guide this transformation, the transport industry needs a new generation of graduates.
