Summary

This MSc brings a cross-disciplinary focus to transport and urban planning which is unique, aiming to critically examine the current challenges of transitioning to sustainable travel behaviours and sustainable cities in the UK and internationally. The programme draws on the latest thinking and debates in transport, urban planning and major infrastructure project development.

The aim of the Transport and City Planning MSc (TCP) is to enable students to work effectively as transport and urban planning practitioners, moving beyond the ‘disciplinary silos’ usually found in academia and practice. A key feature of the MSc is its integrative design across transport and urban planning disciplines - it sees transport as part of the planning of the sustainable city.
