The Transport Planning and the Environment MSc is designed for those who wish to work in the transport profession and have an understanding of transport, environmental intrusion, its measurement and mitigation.

The course draws on the latest research in the area of transport and the environment, some of which is being carried out by Newcastle's Transport Operations Research Group. It will provide you with a sound overview of the transport profession, with specific teaching about air pollution and the modelling of emissions.

Transport Operations Research Group

As one of the leading centres of transport technology in Europe, the Transport Operations Research Group (TORG) is central to key research areas including road user charging and smartcards, developing both the policy ideas and the underlying technologies. We have two central research themes:
-Technologies for transport monitoring and systems management
-Travel behaviour and transport planning

TORG is currently running a world-leading trial in electric vehicles and public charging infrastructure in the north east of England. This research is informing policy, international standards development and its impact on energy demand and environmental emissions. Recently TORG have also developed a low-cost wireless sensing technology called Motes, which is being deployed commercially by several local authorities to monitor traffic pollution and help develop strategies to manage traffic demand and reduce emissions. This world leading technology is being assessed for deployment in a number of high profile international cities.
