Course content

Transport engineering is about efficiently moving people and goods through the use of scientific principles.

Journeys may be made by foot, bicycle, private motorised transport and public transport. The varied means of transport available require infrastructure comprising either of public rights of way or dedicated systems such as railways, which need to be sized, designed, built and maintained.

Taken together, transport and its infrastructure has significant impacts on society and the environment and these impacts need to be estimated.

The MSc Transport Engineering and Planning provides systematic knowledge and skills in the analysis and design of transport systems which are grounded in advanced engineering science, statistical modelling and planning theory and practice.
