Transport engineering is about efficiently moving people and goods through the use of scientific principles.
Journeys may be made by foot, bicycle, private motorised transport and public transport. The varied means of transport available require infrastructure comprising either of public rights of way or dedicated systems such as railways, which need to be sized, designed, built and maintained.
Taken together, transport and its infrastructure has significant impacts on society and the environment and these impacts need to be estimated.
The MSc Transport Engineering and Planning provides systematic knowledge and skills in the analysis and design of transport systems which are grounded in advanced engineering science, statistical modelling and planning theory and practice.
To apply for a Taught Masters postgraduate course at LSBU you need one of the following:
- IELTS 6.5 or TOEFL 580 (Paper) or 237 (Computer) or 90 (Internet)
- Licenciado/Título de Ingeniero/Título de Arquitecto, average 6.0-6.9 (old grading system), or 1.5 in new grading system
For Postgraduate Diploma and Masters courses the normal entry qualification is an Honours degree or equivalent. For some Postgraduate Diplomas alternative qualifications are accepted along with relevant work experience. The University considers each application on its merits and is prepared to admit candidates who can demonstrate they have reached the normal entry requirements on the basis of prior experiential learning.
