Course content

Our MSc Transportation Planning and Engineering (Behaviour) explores the relationships between transport systems, the people who use and operate them, and the wider world. You will study modules covering human factors in transport engineering, and the interactions between transport, energy systems, and the environment.

This MSc is appropriate for students interested in a career in the transport industry. The behaviour pathway - differentiated through the compulsory study of transport, energy and the environment, and human factors in engineering - is suitable for graduates from a range of disciplinary backgrounds.
