Course content

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.

Part-time study is flexible. Normally students will take three years to complete the programme if they undertake one module per week but the length of the course can be reduced to two years, if two modules are taken each week. Many part-time students undertake projects in their place of work.
