Description of course of studies

The transportation system is a very important part of any modern economy and core element of daily human life. Our society and economy are challenged with new defiances like the concept of sustainable development. These new challenges also require new planning and management strategies in the area of transportation planning. There are experts needed who know how to design a road, a traffic light and create public transport network, etc., but they must be also familiar with the concepts of transportation demand management, integrated land use and traffic management, frieght logistic concepts and intermodal traffic management. Tasks like providing optimal transportation conditions for people and economy and enhance a living quality of urban areas can only be met successfully in 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 the transportation planning strategies.

The Master of Science Programme in Transportation Systems (TS) of Technische Universität München (TUM) will provide graduates with the necessary knowledge and skills to deal with this situation. Students will learn to design and operate modern transportation systems and integrated inter-modal transport management systems – and will be prepared to work in dynamically growing market of transport and mobility.

The Master programme consists of 4 semesters and takes 24 months overall. It is based on lectures combined with exercises. The exercises are based as much as possible on real life studies. The lectures and the exercises will provide students with a deep theoretical understanding of the transportation system.

The programme includes a project seminar. 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 work out a survey concept and realize a field work as well as to analyse and discuss their findings with lecturers/research staff.

An 8-weeks internship in transportation related industry or authority together with a 4-month master’s thesis complete the programme.
