Technologies and Infrastructures of Mobilities


Prerequisite/Recommended prerequisite for participation in the module

Relevant BSc degree (Bachelor)

Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

This module addresses and discusses the relationship between transport/infrastructure planning, mobilities and spatial development. The module furthermore offers an introduction to infrastructure and transportation planning focusing on traditional theories and techniques for transport planning. The course further addresses new ways to analyse the different mobilities systems. The students are consequently introduced to methods for analysing infrastructure-related problems in both public and private transport.

Students who complete the module:

Learning objectives


  • Must have an understanding of the relationship between infrastructure development, physical mobility and spatial development
  • Must know the primary determinants for transport behaviour and transport demands (the determinants of trip production, trip distribution, modal split and routing) 
  • Must know about the principles behind transport modelling, and the limitations of the models
  • Must have an understanding of the relation between conventional traffic planning and the ‘mobilities turn’


  • Must be able to identify and analyse infrastructure-related transport problems in both public and private transport
  • Must be able to understand and analyse mobilities designs and mobilities systems (e.g. automobility, velomobility, aeromobility, metromobility etc.) and the interplay between these
  • Must be able to formulate solutions to infrastructure-related transport problems


  • Must be able to identify discrepancies between road network performance, environmental strains and mobility demands
  • Must be able to critically evaluate and examine proposed infrastructure investments
  • Must be able to formulate schemes and strategies for the utilisation of technologies of mobilities aiming at balancing considerations to mobilities and environmental strains
  • Must have an understanding of various traffic models and their underlying mechanisms
