Mobility of the Future: New MOOC on Urban Air Mobility

Study, Research |

How can the traffic collapse of the global multimillion cities be prevented? One way out could be up: Urban air transportation. This is the subject of a new Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) offered by the Institute for LifeLong Learning at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) together with the Munich Aerospace Research Alliance.

By 2030, it is estimated that around 60 percent of humanity will live in cities. If it is possible to shift some of the traffic from the roads to the air, researchers believe this could help to continue to ensure the basic human need for mobility. But there are still some technical, societal and legal preconditions to be met before this can happen. The MOOC "Urban Air Mobility" addresses this exciting future topic. Participants can learn from the best scientists online, from anywhere in the world. This interactive self-study MOOC consists of ten modules, numerous engaging learning units, short videos, knowledge tests and networking opportunities. Three professors from the TUM School of Engineering and Design are involved in the MOOC:
