The master of Transportation Sciences at Hasselt University offers a multi-disciplinary take on transportation and traffic safety, including psychological, social, urban, environmental and infrastructural aspects.


A modern and international transport system is important for moving people and goods in a local, regional and international context. Transportation is inherently connected to economic growth and the environment but also to urban liveability and health. A continuous increase in traffic volumes for passenger transport and freight forwarding transport, leads to major challenges concerning land use, impact on urban areas, traffic safety issues, traffic flow, atmospheric pollution and travel behaviour.

Key facts:

Since transportation is so multi-faceted, the master of Transportation Sciences at Hasselt University has a multi-disciplinary take on transportation including psychological, social, urban, environmental and infrastructural aspects. Students approach the current and future transportation challenges from different angles, integrating knowledge and skills from different domains.

Programme Structure

  • In the first semester students from different complementary backgrounds (e.g. Engineering, Social Sciences, Urban Planning) are introduced to fundamental concepts in behaviour, infrastructure, policy, technological advances and transportation modelling. In parallel and together with fellow students you immediately apply what you learn to the case of an international mega-city such as Jakarta, Lima, Dar Es Salaam or Ho Chi Minh City.
  • The second semester is focussed on research skills and specialisation with a choice between Traffic Safety or Transport Policy and Planning. 
  • At the core of the second master year are an intensive 10-week internship and the master thesis, with the option to spend an entire semester abroad for data collection and gaining work experience.
