Mobility Ventures: Driving Innovation in Transportation Systems

This course is designed for students who aspire to shape the future of mobility. The course explores technological, policy, behavioral and systems-wide frameworks for innovation in transportation systems, complemented with case studies across the mobility spectrum, from autonomous vehicles to urban air mobility to last-mile sidewalk robots. Students will interact with a series of guest lecturers from CEOs and other business and government executives who are actively reshaping the future of mobility. The course includes a project module where interdisciplinary teams of 4-5 students work for a business or government “client” to solve a real-world problem.
