About Transport Engineering
Masters degrees in Transport Engineering equip postgraduates with the skills to devise, plan, develop and construct routes intended for terrestrial transportation.
Taught MSc degrees are typical for the field, though research oriented MRes and MPhil programmes may be available at some institutions. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Planning or Environmental Engineering.
You will learn to engage with and address a range of transport needs, and develop strategies to construct safe, reliable and sustainable transportation networks.
Transport systems are broad-ranging, and include public transport motorway systems, public footpaths and bicycle trails. Across these systems, you will investigate their infrastructure and economic significance, the policy surrounding their development, and the technical means to construct them.
This includes techniques in project management such as asset management and procurement, scheduling, and budgeting. You will also examine methods for traffic management, and analyse environmental impact.
Careers may include roles in transport consultancies, or work on behalf of a local authority or a government agency. You might also work with or for charities which monitor certain areas of land, particularly listed monuments.
