About this course
  • Is Hyperloop really worth the hype? Is this passenger pod levitating in a vacuum tube a viable alternative to curb the environmental impact of current modes of transport
  • This revolutionary and more sustainable mode of transportation for passengers or freight can reach speeds of over 1000 kilometers per hour (600mph), decreasing travel time significantly.
  • For example, one could go from Amsterdam to Paris in 30 minutes instead of 4 hours, or from New York to Washington in 25 minutes instead of 3 hours.
  • Have you ever wondered how levitation works? How would passengers feel? What will infrastructure costs be?
  • Is the Hyperloop concept technically and commercially viable?
  • Regardless of your background, this course will teach you how this technology works and will prove why it is worth investing in.
  • Key topics include the core concepts behind Hyperloop, current developments in the technology, the future solutions Hyperloop will offer and the problems it faces.

What you'll learn
  • Understand the need for Hyperloop
  • Grasp the basic technical concepts of Hyperloop
  • Recognised the key hurdles for Hyperloop in the future
  • Develop your own ideas for Hyperloop
