About

This Urban Transport programme from University of Glasgow offers a comprehensive academic approach to a career in one of the most salient and pressing issues in contemporary urban areas; how to provide safe, inclusive, environmentally friendly and efficient transport systems. 

Overview

The Urban Transport programme from University of Glasgow is designed to ensure that you become familiar with multiple approaches to planning and managing urban transport systems. The programme will provide you with the theory and methods as well as practical knowledge to be employed in governmental organisations and private sector consultancies.

  • The programme will help you understand the broad range of stakeholders in city planning and urban transport systems and the connections to other vital sectors in cities such as energy, environment, housing, land use, economic development, and labour markets to comprehensively understand policies and planning processes to reduce congestion, air pollution, road fatalities and lack of access.
  • The focus will be on multiple modes of urban transport – roads, public transport, active transport, emerging shared and intermodal transport, and the use of information technology in transport, enabling you to design highly innovative urban transport solutions in both developed and emerging country contexts.
  • You will acquire specialist knowledge and methods to analyse cities and transport using Geographic Information Systems (GIS), statistical and visualisation approaches and other planning software and tools. These will allow you to develop city and transport plans and policies, conduct environmental and other impact evaluation, and to undertake a wide variety of geographical and market analysis.

Career

Career opportunities include positions in government agencies, urban planning organisations, city governments, transport and other private consulting firms, and non-profit organisations. The practical knowledge and hands-on skills taught as a part of the programme are applicable world-wide. You will have the chance to learn about new emerging forms of transport data and analytical skills that will make you strong candidates for jobs. These specialist skills will give you unprecedented advantage in the global and UK job market.
