About Transport Planning
Masters degrees in Transport Planning provide specialist postgraduate training in the development and management of transportation systems, including public transport, highway maintenance, air travel management, and congestion analysis.
Popular specialisms include Transport Infrastructure, Transport Management and Transport Planning and Engineering. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject.
With an ever-growing population, the need for experts with skills to manage public transportation systems is ever-growing, too.
You will engage with current market research to explore government policy, transport economy, operations, design, and regulatory frameworks. You may choose to specialise in areas such as: airport and airline planning and management; freight transport and logistics; land use and transport planning; public passenger transport; transport engineering; traffic and urban streets.
Career options are highly varied, and may include senior management positions within local authorities and governing bodies, roles within consultancy, market analysis, and senior positions within manufacturing firms.
Research innovation is highly sought after in the industry. To further your career potential, you may wish to develop your expertise through a PhD.
