The Centre for Transport Studies provides courses in the Bachelor Civil Engineering and a specialization in the Master’s programme Civil Engineering and Management.


Bij verkeer gaat het om de combinatie van infrastructuur, mobiliteit en duurzame transportsystemen.


What is Transport Engineering & Management?

This specialization belongs to the master's programme Civil Engineering and Management.

This specialization will teach you about the engineering, socio-economic, spatial and environmental aspects of traffic and transport systems in relationship to human behaviour.

The specialization in Transport Engineering & Management deals with the behaviour, performance and management of traffic and transport systems. You will learn about the engineering, socio-economic, spatial and environmental aspects of these systems and about various aspects of human behaviour in respect to their potential use.

Transport planning and traffic management issues are another key topic covered in the specialization. You will take an integrated approach to studying travel demand, infrastructural supply, maintenance, performance and control. You will make use of a number of different tools for analysing traffic systems on different scales of space and time and for evaluating the impact of human interventions. You will address topics such as area-wide dynamic traffic management, intelligent transport systems, urban transport, sustainable development, traffic monitoring and evacuation planning. You will apply a methodological perspective to modelling, strategic planning, data fusion, evaluation methods and dynamic optimization.
