From smart cities to the future of ports, the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) and CENIT are introducing three innovative micro-credentials on the digitalization of mobility.

These flexible short courses are designed to help professionals acquire and improve their skills in the field of transport, mobility, and logistics.

Financed by the Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda, through the European Union’s Next Generation funds, this is the first time the UPC has developed this type of learning programme.

The micro-credentials can be taken face-to-face or in hybrid format. Taught over four to six months and worth 15 ECTS credits, these interactive courses will give students the tools they need to support their personal and professional development, and help them adapt to changes in the transport sector and labour market.

Our three micro-credentials beginning in October are:
