About us, the MSc-TEAM
The Study Programme in Transportation Engineering And Mobility (LM-TEAM) aims at responding to the ongoing transformations in the field of transport. The objective is to generate a new generation of engineers to face the transformation challenges and meet the demand, coming from the national and international labour markets, for new skills and competencies in the transport and mobility sectors. Transport engineers today are called to organise and manage transport and mobility in a more innovative way, interconnecting services, modes, vehicles, and infrastructures and understanding and managing the growing complexity of transportation systems, putting new knowledge in favouring or creating innovative business, both for large transport operators and for the complex and distributed ecosystem of mobility services. The TEAM MSc forms a new generation of experts to compete in changed conditions and perspectives, based on the skills acquired in the modelling and simulation of transportation systems, and therefore stimulating economic growth and, at the same time, guaranteeing sustainability objectives.
Job profile of the MSc-TEAM graduate
The graduate students in TEAM operate in highly innovative professional contexts, characterised by a significant propensity to use new technologies. They are qualified experts in the planning, programming, design and management of infrastructures, terminals, networks, services, and technology and organisational processes (including highly innovative ones) related to the mobility of people and the transport and distribution of goods. The job duties of the Master’s Degree in Transport And Mobility Engineering cover a wide range of activities and include:
- adaptation, maintenance, and operation in conditions of efficiency and safety of adequate, accessible, usable, and sustainable infrastructures and services, aimed at satisfying civil, productive, economic, and social functions;
- design, implementation, and control of complex networks, composed of infrastructures, services and organisational and fare systems, to support modern, innovative, sustainable, safe, automated, and connected behaviour in the mobility of people and the transport and distribution of goods;
- analysis, mathematical characterisation, forecasting, control, and management of the demand for mobility, of traffic flows and the flow conditions of vehicles, people and goods;
- support and guidance in the digital transformation processes of transport infrastructures, including the design, construction, and management of Smart Roads, also achieved through services based on the connection between vehicles and infrastructures (driving services, traffic information and control of transport networks with cooperative logics);
- development and planning of road safety, concerning both infrastructures and active vehicle safety, also implemented through communication solutions and cooperative driving;
- application of the paradigms of the circular economy and the reuse of materials to transport engineering;
- estimation and evaluation of the impacts of the construction of infrastructures, of the introduction of technological innovation in the sector; implementation and sharing of decision-making processes, also through the consultation and involvement of the public;
- design, management, and promotion of services provided by transport operators in a market of regulated competition and competition for the attraction of customers;
- conception, design, implementation, and management of solutions in the field of MaaS (Mobility as a Service), modal integration, soft mobility, shared mobility, as well as sizing of technological, organisational and fare systems and design/management of business development plans related to the technical resources optimisation for the provision of services;
- testing of increasingly automated driving solutions in realistic traffic contexts and evaluation of the effects of innovation in terms of flow efficiency and opportunities for mobility and transport;
- design and operate complex systems of the CCAM (Cooperative Connected and Automated Mobility) type.
The job opportunities of the TEAM Master’s Degree are: in public administration agencies responsible for mobility and transport; in the operational bodies dealing with transport infrastructures, networks, and services; in large public and private companies dealing with the production and management of mobility services, transport systems and fleets of autonomous and connected vehicles; in small and medium-sized enterprises with highly innovative characteristics in the mobility sector. Graduates cover work activities with highly specialised professional, intellectual and scientific functions in transport engineering and technical tasks in the early stages of their career
Why choose the MSc-TEAM Master Degree?
The Master’s Degree in Transportation Engineering And Mobility of the University of Naples Federico II offers learning based on acquiring a wide range of specific skills, ranging from the theory and techniques of transport engineering to enabling technologies. The training activities are complemented by experiential and laboratory teaching, supported by other skills helpful in entering the world of work. Students explore application problems in the internship phase and the thesis and develop and test solutions with the industrial and economic actors.
Our industrial partners ensure support during internships and theses, promoting an early approach to the labour market. The list of our partners proliferates. Our partners are Stellantis / FCA, FS Italiane, Almaviva, Hitachi, ANM, EAV, Netcom. The Ministry of Infrastructure and Sustainable Mobility ensures support for internships. More partners are on the way.
Study plans @ TEAM MSc
The General Study Programme allows students to build their study plans by respecting the rules according to the regulations in force. The TEAM MSc teaching coordination commission evaluates all the study plans presented to assess their consistency with the General Study Programme.
There are also three available pre-filled study plans. The teaching coordination commission of the TEAM MSC automatically approves any of these plans as the presentation plays the role of formal communication of the pre-completed program chosen. The three currently active pre-filled curricula are:
- Smart Mobility
- Smart Planning
- Resilient Networks
Finally, two specific Smart Infrastructures Developer study plans guarantee compliance with the rules for enrolment in the minor Smart Infrastructures as part of the national project Technologies for Transitions, a joint program with the Polytechnic of Bari, the Polytechnic of Milan, the Polytechnic of Turin and the Universities of Bologna, Padua, Palermo and Rome La Sapienza, with the support of the Ministry of University and Research.
Pre-requisites for enrolling in the TEAM MSc
To enrol in the TEAM MSc, a three-year degree in Engineering is required in one of the Civil (L7), Information (L8), Industrial (L9) classes, or equivalent qualification for international students.
Otherwise, a level 6 study is required (see EQF, European Qualifications Framework) and previous training with at least 36 ECTS in one or more of the scientific sectors INF / 01, from MAT / 01 to MAT / 09, SECS -S / 02, CHIM / 03, CHIM / 07, FIS / 01, FIS / 07. Previous training with at least 39 ECTS is also required in the scientific sectors from ING-INF / 01 to ING-INF / 05, ING-INF / 07, ING-IND / 10, ING-IND / 11, from ING-IND / 13 to ING-IND / 16, ING-IND / 22, from ING-IND / 31 to ING-IND / 33, ING-IND / 35, from ICAR / 01 to ICAR / 09. In the latter specific field (from ICAR / 01 to ICAR / 09), at least 18 ECTS of previous specific training are required.
Finally, in all cases, a B2 level certificate of proficiency in English is required (minimum).
How to enrol in TEAM MSc
Enrolment in the Engineering Degree Courses is allowed from the 1st of September through an automated procedure on the Segrepass platform and with operating methods advertised on the University portal (www.unina.it) and at the web link of the Polytechnic School and Basic Sciences. (www.scuolapsb.unina.it). The enrolment procedure for the Engineering Degree Courses requires the indication of the Degree Course the student intends to enrol in.
