You can choose from six courses all of which are designed by research leaders in collaboration with some of the most respected players in the industry.

We have recently reviewed and developed our entire suite of transport Master’s degrees. Following consultation with key industry partners we have refreshed our portfolio of modules to ensure our graduates will combine cutting edge theory with hands-on practice and enter the work force armed with the following skills:

  • A strong focus on industry needs
  • A deep understanding of the multi-disciplinary nature of transport
  • A holistic overview of transport problems and approaches to policy formulation
  • Real hands-on experience of what’s like to work in the transport sector with a newly launched industry-inspired integrated project.

As part of an industry-inspired, multi-disciplinary team, you will experience what it is like to tackle real world challenges in real world environments.

Your background could be from engineering and physics through to social science and law. Depending on the route you take, you could learn how to make our transport infrastructure cleaner, safer and more connected, and design sustainable transport solutions. Improving the lives of your fellow citizens. Using methods and models developed in Leeds and deployed around the globe.

And you will do this with colleagues from around the world.
