Transport


The long-standing intercollegiate MSc in Transport, offered in conjunction with the Centre for Transport at Imperial College London, has recently been extended to allow students to select one of three different pathways:
  • Transport
  • Transport with Business Management
  • Transport with Sustainable Development
 
All pathways in the programme are offered full-time over one year, or part-time over two or three years, beginning in September each year. A minimum of a good Honours degree from a UK university in a subject of relevance to transport, or an equivalent qualification from an overseas institution, with an adequate level of numeracy, is normally required for entry.
The programme includes lectures, coursework, seminars and an individual project leading to a dissertation. The lectures consist of compulsory core courses together with a range of options extending the depth and breadth of study.
 
The Transport route has core courses in: Transport and its Context; Quantitative Methods; Transport Engineering and Operations; Transport Economics; Transport Demand and its Modelling; and Transport Policy. Optional modules are then chosen from an extensive list depending on the student’s interests.
The Transport with Business Management consists of core and optional courses in transport, plus a course covering the following four units: Microeconomic Theory; Financial Reporting and Control; Project Management and Entrepreneurship; and Introduction to Business Environments and Organisational Behaviour.
The Transport with Sustainable Development route consists of core and optional courses in transport, plus a course covering the following three units: the Concept of Sustainable Development; Sustainable Development and Engineering Innovation; and Applying the Principles of Sustainable Development.
 
Subject to appropriate choice of options, completion of the MSc Transport programme is accredited by the Institution of Civil Engineers as meeting the regulations of the Engineering Council’s scheme for enabling graduates who do not hold an accredited Bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering to be considered for corporate membership and registration.
Successful completion of the MSc Transport programme also meets the academic requirements for corporate membership of the Institute of Logistics and Transport.
