Summary

Human and freight mobility in large cities is a complex process with dense population and many transport modes to compete for limited space. New emerging modes of transport, such as on-demand services, and new technologies, such as autonomous vehicles, create additional opportunities and challenges.

Content

This course presents the global issue of Mobility. Human and freight mobility in large cities is a complex process with high density of population, many transport modes to compete for limited available space and many operators that try to efficiently manage flows of products and passengers. New emerging modes of transportation, such as on-demand services, and new technologies, such as autonomous vehicles, create additional opportunities and challenges.The interdisciplinary approach integrates SHS with engineering sciences and introduces students to working in teams and to scientific methodologies.

The ability to work as part of an interdisciplinary team on a shared project is an essential skill for engineers, architects and scientists.  The course will focus more on introducing the challenges associated with the mobility of passengers and products in large cities and will give less emphasis in the methodologies. Students will be introduced to the process of team formation and development, and to how to use differences within the team to good effect.  Students will also be introduced to project management, and to basic skills in making verbal and visual presentations. Searching for, accessing, and managing information is also a fundamental competence.  Students will be introduced to how to source and access literature and data, and to how to appropriately reference source material.
