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:
- Prof. Klaus Drechsler researches carbon composites
- Prof. Rolf Moeckel deals with the analysis of travel behavior
- Prof. Constantinos Antoniou's field of expertise is transportation systems
- Trailer for the MOOC "Urban Air Mobility"
