Course content

Our new MSc Intelligent Transport Systems provides you with a comprehensive understanding of how transport systems, sensor technologies, data analytics and research are combined to reshape infrastructure and transform vehicles.

The world is altered by autonomous, intelligent systems that are able to learn, adapt, take decisions and act independently of humans. Climate change, increasing incomes, urbanisation, poor air quality, a large number of traffic fatalities and an ageing population are affecting the world, and hence the context that the transport system operates in. Our MSc Intelligent Transport Systems gives you the knowledge to make an impact and transform the industry.

You will be taught to use state-of-the-art tools and methods to effectively and efficiently collect, analyse, represent and apply this new abundance of data to the transport system. This will involve gaining the ability to design, test, and implement new systems to manage the operation of transport and integrate this with the wider built environment. On completion of the degree, you will be able to utilise tools and methods in evaluating the impacts of emerging technologies on transport system performance in terms of the level of service, capacity, safety, air quality and economics.

This new programme is seeking accreditation by the Chartered Institution of Logistics and Transport (CILT) to ensure it offers professional registration opportunities for all graduates.

We have recently invested £6 million in building expansion and development, which includes new dedicated study areas and computer resources that you'll be using throughout this degree.

We have strong industry links with companies such as Highways England, WSP, Atkins and Galliford Try to name a few. Many of these firms engage with us in both collaborative research and in delivering guest lectures. This provides an ideal opportunity for you to discuss potential employment opportunities.
