The programme focuses on both practical and theoretical aspects of transport engineering andspatial planning. Emphasis is on specialised aspects of analysing, modelling, safety and environmental issues, as well as the interaction between transport and land use. Students are introduced to evolving theories and methods in transport engineering and spatial planning, as well as established theories and methods, with special consideration to sustainability and inter-disciplinary approaches. The research emphasis is on applied research in cooperation with with key stakeholders in the practice of transport engineering.
After successful completion of the programme the student is awarded the degree Master of Science in Civil Engineering with specialization in Transport and Urban Planning. The programme is designed to meet the curriculum requirements for the professional title of Chartered Engineer (Icelandic: verkfræðingur), as defined by the Ministry of Industry and the Association of Chartered Engineers in Iceland.
MSc in Civil Engineering with specialisation in Transport and Urban Planning is a 2 year full time graduate study programme me of 120 ECTS credits (4 semesters, 30 ECTS each semester). Students can either take 90 ECTS in specialized courses and a 30 ECTS MSc thesis, or 60 ECTS in courses and a 60 ECTS MSc thesis with a stronger research focus.
Undergraduate degreeBSc degree in Engineering. Minimum requirements in applied sciences (i.e. mathematics, physics) and in basic subjects fundamental to civil engineering generally (i.e. mechanics, material science, etc.) as well as to concrete technology specifically have to be fulfilled. English language requirementsIf English is not your first language, you will need a recognised English Language qualification to be admitted onto any of the University's degree programmes.
