MSc (Eng) Transport Planning and Engineering


Course Description

Overview

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:
•Traffic management
• 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.

(Student Profile)

Peter Kwesi Yawson

1179.jpg WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO STUDY AT THE INSTITUTE FOR TRANSPORT STUDIES (ITS)?
I decided to study at ITS through recommendations by my senior engineering colleagues who are alumni of ITS. This was after I had expressed a desire to undertake further studies in transport. My working experience after my first degree has been in feeder roads (roads to rural farming communities) development and construction management. But the current development direction in Ghana is supporting the upgrading of most of these roads. These developments have their attendant environmental and safety issues. Therefore when I decided to undertake further studies in transport my senior colleague recommended ITS of Leeds to me as one of the best Transport Studies Institutes one can attend.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE THE EXPERIENCE OF BEING AN ITS MASTERS STUDENT?
I feel honoured to have had this opportunity to be an ITS Masters student. I have been exposed to a very wide range of transport and environmental issues which I never could imagine. The opportunity to be taught by and interact with such seasoned researchers and professionals is rare. This offers me a better opportunity to contribute to the road safety efforts of my agency back home in Ghana.

WHAT HAVE YOU ENJOYED MOST ABOUT THE FIRST SEMESTER AND WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO IN THE NEXT SEMESTER?
The first semester was very busy and I enjoyed the statistics, and modelling lectures (including all the modelling based courseworks). The field trips, especially to see the public transport infrastructure in Leeds (the guided bus-ways) were an exciting experience. I look forward to the specific experiences of the optional modules of semester two and other field trips, in order to make my ITS Masters student experience more complete.

WHAT DO YOU AIM TO DO ONCE YOU’VE COMPLETED YOUR MASTERS?
I am being sponsored by my agency (through the Government of Ghana/IDA of World Bank), and therefore will go back home to share my experience with other colleagues regarding safety issues in road infrastructure design. Secondly, I represent the agency at the regional road safety committee where I hope to contribute a lot in their regional activities. I also plan to undertake research studies in driver distraction in the Ghanaian context to support the effort of the Ghana Road Safety Commission to promote road user safety issues.


(Scholarship)

Transport Employers' Scholarships - 2 Awards

The Institute for Transport Studies (ITS), University of Leeds, is offering two fees scholarships, each worth £2000, to provide development opportunites to students of outstanding ability, achievement and potential. The scholarships will fund 30% of the tuition fees for two UK/EU students to undertake a full-time Masters degree. The scholarships are funded by the employer organisations which recruit staff for their graduate intake directly from the ITS postgraduate cohort. Each year, these employers come to ITS to present their career opportunities and to conduct initial interviews of our students. Reflecting the high quality of our Masters programmes, our students often receive one or more job offers before the end of their studies.

Value of Scholarship(s)

£2,000

Eligibility

You must first hold an offer (conditional or unconditional) of an academic place on a full-time ITS Masters programme for the academic year commencing September 2016, and be designated by the University as being of UK/EU fee status. All applications will be assessed on a competitive basis. A scholarship award cannot be deferred and will lapse if not accepted in September 2016.

Application Procedure

You should submit the ITS scholarship form, including a statement of 500 words on how a Masters degree would enable you to make a difference to transportation (e.g in your country, region or area) and specifically to tackle a significant problem or issue.
