Mastertrack Sustainable Urban Mobility Transitions (SUMT)

SUMT is an EIT double degree program. You need to be accepted both by Architecture Building and Planning (ABP) in Eindhoven and at the partner university of the entry or exit year. Each student will be evaluated on 5 evaluation criteria:

  1. Quality of Bachelor university,
  2. Study success (GPA),
  3. Suitability of Bachelor degree,
  4. Entrepreneurship potential, and
  5. Finally general impression (mainly based on motivation letter).

Depending on the courses you passed in your Bachelor you will receive a score on suitability of your Bachelor degree for this Master track. Courses on mobility or urban planning contribute to a higher score. If you did not pass such courses, you may receive a very low score on this which may eventually lead to a certain university not accepting you. But obviously there are other 4 criteria which also play role.

Students that have an interest in the field of sustainable urban mobility transition are recommended to follow the package Smart Mobility Design and Urban Systems and Real Estate 2. Students who have questions about the SUMT Master track or need advice on the courses that should be taken in the Bachelors can contact prof. Soora Rasouli (s.rasouli@tue.nl).

Master Construction Management and Engineering (CME)

In principle all PT and SI students have access to the CME program. The Master program is especially relevant for students with an interest in exploring the area between ‘construction engineering' and ‘scientific management and economics’. It focuses on the management and implementation of information processes with an emphasis on smart cities and smart buildings. The CME program is grounded in societal challenges such as climate change, energy transition, circular economy, digital twinning, etc.

For students that followed the PT-Living package or the SI-Sustainability for the built environment package, CME is the obvious continuation of their study. These students already followed four courses from the department of the Built Environment.

Students that have an interest in the field of CME are suggested to follow the package Urban Systems and Real Estate 1 or 2. Following one of these packages is not compulsory but is a good preparation. Students that have questions about the CME Master program or need advice on the courses that should follow in the Bachelors can contact dr. Qi Han (q.han@tue.nl).  

For more general information you can check the Master CME website or the CME Education guide.
