Politecnico di Torino is one of the largest Italian educational and research facilities covering all technical fields (engineering and architecture). Its Engineering School is the oldest one in Italy, dating back to 1859. 43% of Italian students come from outside Piedmont and 15% are foreigners (the highest figure in Italy). Since 2014, POLITO has received 47 Million Euro contributions in the H2020 programme on 127 projects, placing in the 4th position for the number of winning projects at Italian level. POLITO is consistently in top positions in Italian university rankings both for the quality of the research and for the educational activities that are carried out. Moreover, POLITO places in 52nd position as Engineering and Technology Faculty in the World University Ranking.

The full range of Transport Engineering competences is available inside POLITO:

  1. Handling mobility-related data
  2. Design and implementation of traveler surveys and other transport-related data collection activities (SHANTI – Survey Harmonisation with New Technologies Improvement);
  3. Analysis of data-bases concerning mobility: statistical data analysis – including data mining – and machine learning techniques applied to the transport domain and passenger satisfaction (SUITS -Supporting Urban Integrated Transport Systems: Transferable tools for authorities);
  4. Analysis of travel attitudes and behaviours, mobility styles and simulation modelling to study relationships between modal diversion and transport policy measures (DEMONSTRATE – Modal diversion, co-modality and technology applications in passenger transport systems, STARS – Shared mobility opporTunities And challenges foR European citieS);
