Stream Outline

This specialisation provides students with advanced study options in Transport Engineering. It is designed to develop skills in modelling and analysing transport systems including passenger and freight for different modes of transport including auto, rail, air, maritime and non-motorised. The program provides sufficient knowledge about the science and practice of transport engineering which should required for students moving to industry or staying in the graduate program pursuing their PhD.
