Certificate of Advanced Studies SUPSI in Advanced Transportation Infrastructure

You are going to learn the most important concepts of infrastructure designs, safety and security control systems and be the first to have used the Gotthard and the Ceneri base tunnels as educational tool. You will be able to understand and manage technical information, complex projects and you will understand how an infrastructure project is conceived, designed, developed, tested, and put into operation. Furthermore, you will be confronted with the city infrastructure of the future and given in-deep information on the operational side such as hubs and interchanges. This is a course in which smart infrastructure will be the central element: we will cover the impact of infrastructure on a variety of transportation systems.


Project work:
1. Create an innovative concept of interchanges for future mobility systems
2. Analyze today’s Swiss public transportation infrastructure and proposed radical changes
3. Create a new “megacity” mobility infrastructure concept
