MSc Transport Planning & the Environment (Scholarships available)

Transport is a major cause of environmental impact. Whether it is air pollution, noise, encroachment on the green belt or climate change, it is widely accepted that further expansion of transport must be balanced against the environmental cost. This programme takes a detailed look at this relationship, and equips students with both academic and vocational skills, in preparation for range of potential career paths.

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.
