DTU is following the COVID-19 situation and its impact closely, please consult the webpage to get the latest updates.
Whether we are involved in transporting goods and consumer durables across continents and national borders, or commuting by car, bus, train, or bike, we are all heavily dependent on the efficiency of our transport systems.
Transport by sea, road, rail, and air increases in step with the speed at which society develops. If we are to continue to enjoy economic growth and welfare, we need efficient infrastructures which ensure not only that goods and people can be transported as quickly and inexpensively as possible, but also that this can be done sustainably and consuming minimal resources.
Tackling the logistical challenges associated with this Gordian knot is an important task for engineers, but it also gives rise to a number of exciting specialist areas and new technologies within, e.g., Smart Mobility, Mobility as a Service (MaaS), and Railways of the future (hyperloop).
With an Master’s in Transport and Logistics , you will be an expert in mathematical modelling and IT-based solutions, and you can therefore go on to work with solving society’s infrastructural and mobility challenges through the application of optimization tools, sustainable planning systems, sophisticated modelling techniques and robust evaluation methods.
Study programme focus
The study programme’s engineering approach to infrastructure includes modelling and computer-based solutions for optimizing transport and logistics, but you will also obtain knowledge of software technology, data analysis, geo-informatics, statistics, operations analysis, finance, planning, and management.
The focus of the MSc programme in Transport and Logistics at Technical University of Denmark (DTU) is on applied transport science—often in relation to methodology and research. Our aim is to provide you with the qualifications and skills needed to classify and address specific transport and logistics challenges, to prepare analyses in support of transport policy decisions (such as sustainable and intelligent transport systems), and to analyse and solve complex logistical planning issues regarding, e.g., supply chains, production, and storage and distribution systems.
DTU is part of an extensive network of private companies and public authorities in both the transport and logistics sector, allowing you to work with real-life issues and projects during your course of study. There is also considerable scope for studying for one or two semesters at one of our international partner universities.
There many attractive career opportunities, typically in areas such as supply and production management, planning, software development, decision support, consultancy, analysis, model design, and management within both the transport and logistics sectors as well as other industries.
Graduates often assume management positions and specialist functions. Recent examples of employment include:
- consultancies with expertise in transport, e.g. Rambøll, COWI, Atkins, and Sweco
- general consultancy, e.g. McKinsey, Deloitte
- the software sector, e.g. Rapidis.
- producers and consumers of goods (transport and logistics departments)
- airlines and shipping companies
- transport infrastructure owners (public authorities, ports, airports, private companies)
- public agencies and organizations, such as the Danish Road Directorate, the Danish Transport Authority, Banedanmark, and DSB
