The study programme focuses on analysis, challenges and problem solving in transport and provides a thorough understanding of the complexity and structure of different transport systems. In addition to providing a solid, transport-related platform, the study program allows students to choose between two directions; urban transport and long-distance transport, where both passenger and freight transport are dealt with. The structure of the study also covers topics related to logistics, such as networks and operational issues. The subject area has a scientific approach, based on areas such as economics, engineering, IT, social sciences and quantitative methods such as operations analysis and statistics. The programme is open to international students and all teaching takes place in English.
