The Master’s in Transportation, Mobility, and Networks run by MINES Paris – PSL and jointly accredited with the École d’Urbanisme de Paris (Universités Paris Est Créteil and Gustave Eiffel), École des Ponts ParisTech and Institut Polytechnique de Paris, is designed for students wishing to better equip their analysis skills and develop solutions to transportation-related challenges through an in-depth mastery of formalized tools. The aim of this course of study is to train professionals and researchers capable of providing answers to the issues surrounding sustainability in the transportation and mobility sectors, making connections between technical, technological, economic, social, and urbanistic dimensions and the regional context in which they are placed.

Learning outcomes

  • Identify, analyze, and predict the factors that determine transportation demand.
  • Analyze a transportation problem in its full complexity, so as to be able to define and conduct a transportation policy and/or project within the framework of regional land use planning, urban policies, safety and congestion issues, and local or global pollution.
  • Work with all involved stakeholders to produce a regional diagnostic, addressing economic, social, and environmental aspects.
  • Master the professional tools and instruments needed in the field of transportation and development.


The Transportation and Mobility course of study focuses on the interactions between development, urban planning, and mobility. The Transportation and Sustainable Development course considers issues related to mobility through the lens of sustainable development, emphasizing innovative mobility service design tools based on digital technologies.


Students move quickly into engineering roles or positions with high levels of managerial responsibility, with jobs such as:

  • Mobility project manager for a local government or mobility organizing authority;
  • Sustainable mobility service and vehicle designer with one of the traditional players (manufacturer, network manager) or an information technology-based company;
  • Transportation and mobility project manager for a civil engineering company or an engineering consulting firm;
  • Operator of transportation service or infrastructure, involved in operational production of transportation;
  • Auditor and manager of sustainable development policy for a transportation service company (Transportation and Sustainable Development track only).
