The course grants the master degree in Urban Mobility Management and is the result of a collaboration between the University of Coimbra and the University of Porto.
The themes addressed in the different course units will tend to be coordinated among themselves through the integrated analysis of a real problem in its various aspects. The course is geared towards the transmission of knowledge in the specific areas of territory planning, transport and integrated urban mobility management, based on innovative and sustainable policies, principles and strategies. These themes focus particularly on urban and metropolitan issues, but also on inter-municipal mobility in "low-density" territories (at the level of Intermunicipal Communities).
Holders of a bachelor's degree or equivalent, in Civil Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Architecture, Geographic Engineering, Territory Planning or related areas.
Holders of a scientifically relevant academic, scientific or professional curriculum.
