Master of Transportation Systems, SEU-Monash Joint degree
Transportation professionals require a range of advanced skills with a global perspective to develop more sustainable transport systems. To gain this technical and planning expertise in transportation systems, Southeast University and Monash University have established a joint Master’s program in Transportation Systems. This joint Master’s program is undertaken over two years and students graduate with two Master’s degrees; one from Southeast University and one from Monash University.
This first year of the program comprises two semesters of coursework units delivered in English. Units are taught at the Southeast University and Monash University Joint Graduate School in Suzhou, China. The Joint Graduate School in Suzhou is located in the newly developed Suzhou Dushu Lake Higher Education Town that is a part of the Science and Education Innovation District of Suzhou. This area has a number of Universities and Research Institutes as well as recreation and cultural facilities.
In Semester 1, students are required to take six units taught by Southeast University consisting of three core units and three elective units:
Core Units, Semester 1 (by SEU):
- Research Seminar
- Highway Design Theory and Methods
- Road Traffic Safety
Elective Units, Semester 1 (by SEU):
- Highway Operation and Management
- Urban Transport Network Analysis
- Theory and Method for Pavement Design
- Advanced Soil Mechanics
- Advanced Pavement Materials
In Semester 2, students are required to take another six core units delivered by Monash University:
- Intelligent Transportation Systems: Engineering & Management*
- Quantitative Methods for Transportation Systems Analysis*
- Modelling Transportation Systems*
- Urban Public Transportation Systems
- Sustainable Transportation Systems Planning
- Case Studies in Transportation Systems
For the above three units marked by “*”, the students can elect to take these course at the Monash University Clayton Campus in Melbourne, Australia.
The second year of the program consists of students undertaking a research project supervised by academics from Southeast University as well as a mentor from industrial institutes in the Suzhou area. A research thesis is required for each student.

About ITS (Monash)
On behalf of our entire staff and students, it is my great pleasure to welcome you to the Institute of Transport Studies (ITS Monash) at Monash University.
ITS (Monash) has a long and proud history in Monash University and Australia. The transport group at Monash was established in 1969. The Institute of Transport Studies was established in 1995 as the Key National Centre of Excellence in Teaching and Research in Transport Management, recognised by the Australian Government (a joint venture between The University of Sydney and Monash University). For more than four decades the transport group has played a crucial role in the transport field through fundamental, applied and industry-relevant research and education. Through our excellent education programs we continue to educate transportation leaders for industry, government and academia.
At ITS (Monash), we recognise that the next important challenge and opportunity will present itself through availability of live data and low-priced technology to travellers. There will be soon over 3 billion people with connected devices and more than 210 billion sensors out there that will provide a once-in-generation opportunity to tackle issues of complex transport and urban mobility for modern cities. At ITS (Monash) we have aligned our research focus and efforts to take advantage of this new leap in mobility, opportunity to change the way we travel, create sustainable transport, and work toward more liveable cities.
