The social need for graduates with a cross-disciplinary mobility profile, such as the one acquired through tThe MSc programme Urban Design with a specialization in Mobilities & Urban Studies at Aalborg University, is mainly found within public administration and institutions as well as private organisations, consultancies and consulting engineering firms working within the field of mobility, transport and city life.
Job in the Public Sector
In the public sector, on state and municipal levels alike, there is a demand for mobility graduates with skills to analyse and plan for new ways to organise social mobilities that are moving towards resource optimisation, sustainable mobilities systems and a more equal distribution of mobilities resources. State administrations and municipalities, thus, present significant public employment opportunities within the mobility profession.
Job in the private sector
In the private sector, there is a great need for knowledge, proficiencies and competencies related to working out technological and strategic mobilities solutions that are able to satisfy the increasing demand for mobility within new resource restrictions. Moreover, private NGOs and other organisations (e.g. within tourism) also offer employment opportunities. Large private logistics, transportation and tourism businesses are other options for a mobility professional. Finally, consulting engineering firms and consultancies will also require graduates with a Master’s degree in Mobilities and Urban Studies.
Mobilities & Urban Studies at Aalborg University combines such skills as sociology, engineering and teamwork. This combination gives the student great opportunity to influence the career path he/she wish to follow. Also if this path features the desire to do mobility research.
