Course Summary

If you are an ambitious engineering graduate – from a civil, mechanical, computing or electronic engineering background – this course is a smart route to a career in the expanding field of transport consultancy and public policy. Learn to develop solutions to engineering problems that fit the broader aims of transport and planning policy, from academics with an international reputation whose research sets industry standards. This includes studying the principles of transport engineering and data collection and analysis. Develop an early understanding of four-stage modelling before gaining hands-on experience of SATURN and other Leeds-built models so that you become fluent in their use in live environments. Deepen your knowledge of: engineering design principles; integrated transport networks - road, rail, and aviation; refining models to fit local contexts. And experience what it is like to be part of a project team working across disciplinary boundaries within the transport sector. Through this, gain insights into how engineering, planning, economics, environmental science and modelling can work together to develop sustainable solutions to global challenges. This industry-inspired approach will enable you to apply your knowledge to real-world issues in the field. This course is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT UK). It also fulfils the educational requirements for membership of the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation (CIHT).

Modules

This module will be run in the second semester and aims to enhance a range of personal and professional related skills (technical applied transport skills and project management skills) by placing students in a multi-disciplinary project group (to reflect the range of transport masters programmes) and asking them to undertake a specific transport project as suggested by a client (an external organisation or ITS). The module will build upon the TRAN5015M Shaping Futures Transport Systems (SFTS) module to be run in the first semester; which outlines to students the contribution of different roles in the development of transport sector projects and in doing so helps equip them with the fundamental techniques necessary to work in inter-disciplinary teams.
