18 Feb NET and Politecnico di Milano together for Mobility Engineering
Posted at 09:00h in Uncategorized
as part of the master's degree in Mobility Engineering, NET Engineering partnered with Politecnico di Milano for the definition of the programme intended for the training of recently established professional figures.
Smart cities, large infrastructure networks, transportation intermodality and travel experience services, analysis of big data to understand the phenomena of mobility, sustainable techniques and technologies for traffic regulation: these are some of the challenges that designers and mobility experts are called upon to face.
The Politecnico di Milano has put the above-mentioned topics at the center of the training path of the recently established Master’s Degree in Mobility Engineering and has seen NET Engineering as one of the ideal partners.
Together with NET, 12 other entities and industries in the sector (including ATM, Trenord, Alstom, ItalScania, Gruppo FS Italiane) collaborated with the Milanese University to define the study programme, with the aim of creating an educational path – also open to foreign students – which offers, on the one hand, national and international opportunities to students and, on the other, a new stimulus to the mobility sector.
The new professionals, in fact, will have both an engineering and methodological preparation, as well as an interdisciplinary training and a strategic system vision. They will be able to respond to the forthcoming challenges and plan mobility by envisioning the future of our cities; “megacities of 20-30 million people, in which it will be crucial to build an integrated system of high-speed trains and metropolitan networks in order to make them livable and sustainable” – says Renato Mazzoncini, professor of Mobility Infrastructures and Services at the Politecnico di Milano and former CEO of the FS Group, in the article published today in “Buone Notizie” (a weekly magazine by “Corriere della Sera“) – “developing the last mile, up to home, with shared electric bikes and scooters thanks to the sharing economy effect“.
