What will the city of tomorrow look like?
On the YouTube channel "Discover TU Dresden", the current episode of "Gute Frage" is about the city of the future. Prof. Arnd Stephan and student Jule Klepin were asked about the role of transport and mobility in this.
What is needed for liveable cities of the future? What will Dresden look like in 30 years? Is the city of tomorrow greener and more sustainable? And how will we get around in the city in the future? The TU Dresden social media team explored these questions on the YouTube channel "Discover TU Dresden". And from very different perspectives.
In addition to the fields of economics, architecture and urban development, the topics of transport, traffic and mobility in the city of the future were also scrutinised and two members of the "Friedrich List" Faculty of Transport and Traffic Sciences of TU Desden were interviewed (minute 04:31 to 09:55):
Prof. Arnd Stephan, head of the Chair of Electric Railways, explains in the video why he wants the city of the future to have a high level of mobility but little traffic - and what that might look like. He sees the greatest challenge for future mobility less in the development of new technology than in individual usage behaviour and people's emotional attachment to their own cars.
Jule Klepin is a graduate student in Traffic Engineering at the faculty. She can well imagine a life without her own car. For that, however, bike and car sharing services would have to be expanded. As a future junior engineer, the long planning and construction times of transport and traffic projects frustrate her.
The new YouTube channel "Discover TU Dresden" features people from the university. The social media team accompanies them in their work and studies and asks them questions about current topics in the "Good Question" format.
The transformation from self-determined participation in transport and traffic to rationally sensible transport - that is the big problem.
Prof. Arnd Stephan, Transport and Traffic Scientist at TU Dresden
"Friedrich List" Faculty of Transport and Traffic Sciences
At the faculty, which is unique in Germany, 22 professors teach and conduct interdisciplinary research on the design of sustainable transport markets and on sustainable mobility solutions. In 6 business and engineering degree programmes, scientific fundamentals, methods and approaches are taught in close connection with practical and current social issues.
This includes, for example, the design of transport infrastructures, the development of concepts for the operation of vehicles and transport companies, the development of vehicle components, but also the collection of data to describe transport systems and to model supply and demand.
First-year students can expect a course of study that is close to real life and opens up a wide range of career opportunities in industrial, transport and logistics companies, planning and consulting offices, associations, public administrations, national and international organisations as well as research and teaching institutions.
