Smart Mobility (SM)

The Smart Mobility theme focuses on emerging technologies in transportation engineering. This includes autonomous, connected, electrified and shared micro-mobility transportation systems. Analytical theories and tools will include big data analytics, econometrics, network models and optimization methods. The topics covered will be of interest to learners who want to plan, design, operate or manage smart mobility systems.  Techniques for assessing the safety, efficiency, sustainability and societal impacts of these systems are useful to a broad cross section of professionals, including engineers and policy makers.

Curriculum

Learners are required to take five Civil Engineering courses.  You may pick any five from this group:
