MSc (Eng) Transport Planning and Engineering (Scholarships available)

The focus of this Masters programme is on engineering solutions to transport issues, particularly how the design of systems determines the nature of how people and goods are transported. It is particularly suited to those who wish to extend their engineering capabilities, having studied a civil engineering or a related subject at undergraduate level.

During the programme, students learn how to use engineering to meet the challenges of integrating different modes of transport and make travel safer, greener and more efficient. Students are first equipped with core technical skills in data collection, modelling, planning and engineering design. They then select from a range of optional modules, all of which have practical applications.

Employability Jobs and Careers

The transport sector continues to need people with the right skills and training. Students progress from the programme to a range of graduate-level jobs including those in consultancy, government, transport operators, not-for-profit and international agencies. ITS supports this via our close links with employers.
