MSc in Urban Transport


The Urban Transport programme provides you with everything you need to begin a career as a transport researcher, analyst, or planner.

In addition to learning about core transport planning and modelling approaches, a variety of practical skills sought after by employers are covered in the programme such as working with geographic information systems (GIS), data science (using R), and statistical data analysis.

The programme is convened by academics from the University’s Urban Big Data Centre. This provides you with access to cutting edge data (e.g., crowdsourced cycling data or GPS traces), as well as training opportunities and seminars given by leading international scholars.

The structure of our MSC in Urban Transport allows you to focus on areas of interest to you. Past students have worked with topics such as ways to promote cycling, consumer attitudes towards connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs), or how the transport sector interacts with social and economic inequality. You will work closely with lecturers to tailor the course to your own needs and interests.

The programme has good connections with industry, meaning that many of our past students have successfully secured summer internships during the course and full employment even before completing their degree.
