This well respected and industry credited course offers the gateway to a successful career in the transport professions.

Developments in transport shape the world we live in and influence communities’ economic and social wellbeing. Transporting people and goods provides a serious challenge for politicians, transport planners and engineering specialists.

During your studies you will examine the major transport issues facing society and learn the main techniques applied in analysing and resolving transport problems.

The course is approved as the further learning component required for Charter status by the Institute of Civil Engineers (ICE) and the Chartered Institute of Highways and Transportation (CIHT), as well as for the TPS/CIHT’s Transport Planning Professional qualification (TPP).
