If you are an ambitious engineering graduate – from a civil, mechanical, computing or electronic engineering background – our Transport Planning and Engineering Masters is the smart route to a career in the expanding field of transport consultancy and public policy.
Learn from academics with an international reputation whose research sets industry standards, on a course that is designed in close collaboration with industry. This includes studying the principles of transport engineering and data collection and analysis. Other options include:
• Road geometry and infrastructure
• System dynamics
• Road safety management
• Public transport planning.
Develop an early understanding of four-stage modelling before gaining hands-on experience of SATURN and other Leeds-built models so that you become fluent in their use in live environments.
Deepen your knowledge of:
• Engineering design principles
• Integrated transport networks - road, rail, and aviation
• Refining models to fit local contexts.
And experience what it is like to be part of a project team working across numerous subject boundaries relevant to the transport sector. Through this, gain insights into how transport planning, social science, economics, environmental science, modelling and engineering can work together to design transport solutions to global challenges. This industry-inspired initiative will enable you to apply your knowledge to real world transport issues in the field.
Your colleagues will be among the best and brightest from Latin America to the Far East, from Africa to Europe and the UK. Together you will learn engineering techniques that will help you develop transport networks that are founded on fundamental principles, robust evidence, sustainable and equitable principles, state-of-the-art modelling, accurate data analysis, and an understanding of human psychology.
This course provides you with a clear pathway to the Transport Planning Professional (TPP) qualification and is accredited by the major professional bodies in the transport sector, including Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT UK) and Chartered Institution of Highways and Transport (CIHT).
You can also study this subject at Postgraduate Diploma level, part time or full time.
