Advanced Master in Smart Mobility

Background

Anticipating and managing the impact of digital technology on transportation A new high-quality program, unique in France, run by two engineering schools specializing in transportation and digital technology: Télécom ParisTech and École des Ponts ParisTech.

Digital technologies are to be found everywhere in all forms of mobility. Travelers have access to solutions that are both simple and powerful, and more and more innovative services, to organize their journeys. On the supply side, customer relations, operations, maintenance, and investment planning have been profoundly transformed. New practices made possible by autonomous vehicles, car sharing, and ridesharing, now pose big challenges to mobility patterns and are transforming value chains and business models in the sector.

The Advanced Master - Mastère Spécialisé® in Smart Mobility proposes a high-level technical and managerial program, which notably tackles:

  • The organization of mobility systems,
  • Transportation systems,
  • The possibilities opened up by information processing,
  • The design and management of mobility services.

BENEFITS

  • Teaching based on numerous case studies and extensive input from specialists.
  • A teaching team combining teachers and researchers from both schools – to teach the most advanced theories and practices – and working professionals – to stay in contact with the needs and applications of companies.
  • Numerous contacts with companies, through projects on real-world data, tradeshows…
  • Group-based discussion and analysis.
  • The upcoming support of a club of founding partners: including RENAULT, the Île-de-France Region, Setec, and SNCF.

Who is the program for?

The Advanced Master - Mastère Spécialisé® in Smart Mobility is an  Executive, post-Masters, or post-engineering degree program, intended to build upon and specialize an initial degree in engineering (Masters level)).

Applicants must have a two-year Masters level degree in transportation systems engineering, in industrial or mechanical engineering, in systems architecture, or in computer science. A one-year Masters degree, plus at least three years of professional experience in the field concerned, is also sufficient.
