Degree: Master of Science (two years) with a major in Transportation Systems Engineering
The Intelligent transport system master's programme focuses on the integration of telecommunications and information technology into vehicles and physical road infrastructure in order to achieve increased efficiency, safety and mobility while decreasing environmental impact.
The programme gives students the engineering and managerial skills required for the design, planning, analysis and management of transport systems. The focus lies on road transportation systems and public transport and the understanding of traffic congestion, air pollution and road accident prevention.
The ITS programme gives students the skills to understand and control transport systems through the use of optimisation and simulation tools and application of telecommunications and geographical information systems. Study areas also include traffic modelling and traffic simulation, as well as road safety issues and management skills. To prepare the students for management positions, language and oral and written communication courses are integrated in the programme.
During the course of the programme students will be able to specialise in areas such as traffic safety management, mobile and wireless telecommunications or mathematical modelling of traffic systems. The programme ends with a six month long degree project.
ITS students at Linköping University will be at the frontline of Swedish ITS research as Linköping University is the coordinating university of the Swedish National Postgraduate School of ITS. The university is also a member of ITS-EduNet, the network for Training and Education on Intelligent Transport Systems.
The Intelligent transport systems master's programme is designed to prepare students for a career as a traffic engineer or traffic planner in public or private organisations, or as a developer of products and services related to the transport sector. Students are also well prepared for a research career or for continuing their studies towards a PhD degree.
