About

If you’re an ambitious engineering graduate – from a civil, mechanical, computing or electronic engineering background – this Transport Planning and Engineering course from University of Leeds is a smart route to a career in the expanding field of transport consultancy and public policy.

Overview

Throughout this Transport Planning and Engineering course from University of Leeds, you’ll learn to develop solutions to engineering problems that fit the broader aims of transport and planning policy, from academics with an international reputation. 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

You’ll 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.

You’ll also deepen your knowledge of:

  • Engineering design principles
  • Integrated transport networks - road, rail, and aviation
  • Refining models to fit local contexts

You will also experience what it is like to be part of a project team working across disciplinary boundaries within the transport sector. Through this, you’ll gain insights into how planning, economics, environmental science, modelling and engineering can work together to develop sustainable solutions to global challenges. This practical approach will enable you to apply your knowledge to real-world issues in sustainable mobility and transport systems.

This Masters degree will teach you 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.
