Urban Transport

A cross-disciplinary course approach will ensure you learn industry-specific skills in both transport planning and engineering and allows you to focus more heavily on either of the two strands of the programme. Key courses on transport will be followed by lab sessions where practical lessons on the use of highly specialised software will be given in the form of either independent or group projects. This approach will help students to not only acquire theoretical knowledge but also to apply their knowledge to real world problems with actual data. Students will be expected submit essays and lab reports as part of the their course assessment and a dissertation at the end of the programme.
