Enhance your employability in the competitive global market with a qualification that provides advanced technical foundations and industrial perspectives in your chosen field.
The MEngSt allows students with academic engineering backgrounds to expand their existing theoretical and practical skills.
You can complete a Master of Engineering Studies in Transportation Engineering, a specialised programme built in conjunction with input from industry leaders.
The programme is particularly suitable if you have an approved bachelors degree in Civil Engineering, but is open to those with relevant qualifications in other areas of engineering or science.
The skills are delivered at an advanced level and are applicable for both graduates and professionals with industry experience.
You will have the opportunity to develop an understanding of concepts and techniques fundamental to transportation engineering, which can then be used to approach current and future issues in the industry. Some of the core elements of the programme include:
Highway and transportation design, infrastructure asset management, pavement materials and management systems, planning and design of transportation facilities and,
road safety and crash investigation, sustainable transport, traffic engineering, transport and land use planning, transport systems economics.
This is available as either a 120 (1 year full-time) or 180-point (18 months full-time) programme. The option you pursue generally depends on your prior study.
Taught 120 points:
You must have completed a four-year bachelors degree in engineering at a recognised university (or similar institution), in a field similar to your intended specialisation, that includes:
You will need a GPE of 4.0 (65%-69.9%).
If you do not meet the GPE requirement, you can still gain entry by passing 60 points towards the Postgraduate Certificate in Engineering with a GPA of 4.0.
In exceptional circumstances, the university will consider you for entry if you have completed an undergraduate degree and have three years of work experience in engineering.
Graduates can expect to gain a greater understanding of transport infrastructure and the way it could evolve to meet population’s needs.
Some key areas of focus include modelling road-user networks, the effect of vehicle pollution on commuters and the potential introduction of wireless charging for electric vehicles.
People with advanced degrees in transportation engineering enjoy careers as company or agency traffic engineers, transportation analysts, etc. Graduates also pursue management positions in large companies, agencies and non-profit organizations.
