MSc Smart Mobility Data Science and Analytics
Data is central to our future and technological advancement. As we continue to urbanize and gather more data about our mobility patterns and urban systems, the challenge is not simply the amount of data, but how we manage them, critically understand their quality, and utilize findings to address our cities’ most pressing challenges. Today, there is an expanding need to forge a new generation of data scientists, capable of exploring our ever-increasing urban data and extracting meaningful insights. Such work is critical to supporting cities’ strategic decisions and pushing us towards a more sustainable future, centred on efficient resource use, a clean environment, equitable citizen engagement, and a healthy, low-carbon society. The Smart Mobility Data Science and Analytics program is designed in an interdisciplinary fashion and emphasizes new and emerging transportation technologies and services for citizens, goods, and logistics. Furthermore, as an EIT Urban Mobility Master School program, it integrates entrepreneurship & innovation throughout the coursework and was launched to train future elite data scientists in urban mobility and innovation.
The program welcomes candidates who have a solid foundation in analytical problem solving with an eye to details, as demonstrated by a bachelor’s degree in Engineering, Information Science, Computer Science, Statistics or Geoinformation Technology. The Urban Analytics & Smart Mobility program also encourages applicants with a Bachelor’s degree in Urban Planning, Geography, Economics, Business Analytics or other relevant disciplines, provided they have verifiable experience in programming, calculus, linear algebra, and mathematical statistics.
Applicants must have completed a Bachelor’s degree encompassing a minimum of 180 ECTS credits or equivalent academic qualifications from an internationally recognized university.
Proof of English Language Proficiency
All our programs are taught in English. All applicants must provide proof of their English language proficiency. This is generally verified through an internationally recognized test such as TOEFL or IELTS. We advise all applicants considering submitting an application to take either a TOEFL or an IELTS test as they are accepted by all partner universities.

All programmes at the EIT Urban Mobility Master School follow the same scheme:
- Students study one year each at two different universities–the “entry” university and the “exit” university. All options are located at a leading university in Europe in the field of urban mobility.
- During the first-year studies, students will be introduced Innovation and Entrepreneurship and participate in an extended Challenge Project. During the same year, students will acquire essential technical skills for working with urban mobility challenges.
- Between the first and second year, students will participate in a Summer School applying new skills to two different cities within Europe.
- In the second year, students will choose from several more specialised courses in both technical content and innovation and entrepreneurship. Students will also participate in a shorter challenge project that includes an internship at a company or organisation working to meet urban mobility challenges. To complete their degree, in the second year, students will carry out an independent master thesis, combining and demonstrating their full set of technical and entrepreneurial skills.
- You will have a wide range of career opportunities within the public and private sectors, as well as the business know-how to start your own business or conduct rigorous research.
