The transportation system is a very important part of any modern economy and a core element of daily human life. Our society and economy are confronting new challenges like the concept of sustainable development. These new challenges also require new planning and management strategies in the area of transportation planning. Experts are needed who know how to design a road, traffic lights and create public transport networks, etc., but they must also be familiar with the concepts of transportation demand management, integrated land use and traffic management, freight logistic concepts and intermodal traffic management.
Tasks like providing optimal transportation conditions for people and the economy and enhancing the living quality of urban areas can only be met successfully in the long term if the transportation system is considered as a part of a complex system. Therefore, the interactions between transport, economy, land use and natural environment must be included into transportation planning strategies.
The Master of Science Programme in Transportation Systems M.Sc.(TS) of Technische Universität München (TUM) will provide graduates with the necessary knowledge and skills to deal with this challenge. Students will learn to design and operate modern transportation systems and integrated inter-modal transport management systems and will be prepared to work in the dynamically growing market of transport and mobility.
The Master program Transportation Systems consists of 4 semesters. It takes 24 months overall and starts in October each year. It is based on lectures combined with exercises and provides students with a deep theoretical understanding of all different aspects of the transportation system. The program consists of:
The project seminar provides the opportunity to explore scientific investigations and practical solutions in an experimental environment. In an international and interdisciplinary group, the participants will be asked to process together a complex engineering task and discuss their findings with lecturers/ research staff.
An 8-weeks internship in transportation related industry or authority together with a 6-month Master's Thesis complete the program.
The language of tuition of our Master program is English.
Applications are open to candidates with a relevant bachelor's degree or European / German FH Diplom with at least grade C according to the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) or its equivalent in any of the following areas (but not limited): Civil Engineering, Transportation Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Geodetics, Mechanical Engineering, Geography, Computer Science, Communications Engineering, Economics, Mathematics, Physical Sciences, Architecture, Environmental Engineering, Tourisms. If the English language is not your native language nor the language medium during your previous course of study, TOEFL, IELTS or the Cambridge Main Suite of English Examinations is required for non-native English speaking applicants.
You are normally required to take an English Proficiency Test if you come from a non-English speaking country.
Most European Universities recognise the IELTS test.More information on IELTS
