E-learning “Urban Air Mobility”

Munich Aerospace’s e-learning program is part of the Global Aerospace Campus and provides continuing education for students and young professionals in the aerospace industry. International lecturers from teaching, industry and research highlight current and future-oriented aerospace topics in the courses.

How can we prevent chaotic traffic in cities? How can we better reach remote areas? International experts of the research movement “Urban Air Mobility” are working on innovative air transport solutions to answer the technological, environmental, and legal questions of “urban transport in the 3rd dimension”.

Cities in particular will suffer from the negative consequences of outdated traffic management: According to forecasts, around 60% of people will live in cities by 2030. Shifting urban movement from the road to the air expands mobility into a third dimension and relieves the traffic infrastructure in densely populated regions.

The English MOOC “Urban Air Mobility” was launched in cooperation with the TUM Institute for LifeLong Learning and offers a free opportunity to learn more about this current and forward-oriented topic. The interactive MOOC includes ten modules, numerous interesting lessons, short videos, knowledge tests and opportunities to expand your own network.

Experts from the Technical University of Munich, the Georgia Institute of Technology, Concordia University, the Universidade de São Paulo, the German Aerospace Center (DLR), Airbus Urban Mobility GmbH, the University of the Bundeswehr Munich, Bauhaus Luftfahrt and the German Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure provide information on the technical, social, and legal challenges of urban air mobility.
