The Master of Advanced Studies (MAS) in Future Transport Systems was devised within the SCCER Mobility network to transfer knowledge and research into practice. Certain network members play key roles in the academic management and teaching of the courses.
With the MAS in Future Transport Systems, ETH Zurich offers practice-oriented continuing education for professionals. The program provides the participants with the technical foundations so that they can evaluate, develop, and implement integrated, sustainable and climate-friendly mobility solutions in their own work environment. Participants learn skills to better predict the impact of specific changes and interventions on the overall mobility system, assess the potential of new technologies as well as develop new business models in the field.
The MAS consists of three interdisciplinary Certificates of Advanced Studies (CAS): System Aspects, Technology Potentials and New Business Models. Upon successful completion of the three CAS courses, students can opt for obtaining the MAS degree by completing a Master’s project and writing a Master's thesis. The total study time is usually two years part-time.
The main target group for the two-year MAS program and the CAS courses are professionals in a strategic or operational role as well as project managers and executives from the private sector and governmental institutions. Participants from all industries are welcome. People who want to change career paths and are aiming to work in the mobility sector can also apply.
