New transportation technologies and global economics are influencing the way we approach planning and delivering transport systems. Learn to take the lead in shaping next-generation mobility with our accredited MSc Transport Engineering and Planning postgraduate degree.

Delivered for over fifty years, and shaped by industry and real-world relevance, our course is recognised as a strong postgraduate qualification for students and professionals interested in the management, engineering and planning of transport infrastructure. You will build specialist knowledge in topics such as transport policy and planning, traffic analysis, forecasting and infrastructure design.

Available with full-time and part-time study pathways, the course is designed to support your progression in developing your career with a transport consultancy, a local or central government planning department, or a passenger transport authority. Our part-time study pathway is designed to fit around your existing commitments or be combined with a graduate training programme.

This degree is accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators (JBM) comprising of the Institution of Civil Engineers, Institution of Structural Engineers, Institute of Highway Engineers, the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation and the Permanent Way Institution on behalf of the Engineering Council as meeting the requirements for Further Learning for a Chartered Engineer (CEng) for candidates who have already acquired a partial CEng accredited undergraduate first degree.

It should be noted that candidates completing the MSc who hold an underpinning accredited IEng degree or a non-accredited bachelor degree will need to apply for an academic assessment to determine whether they will meet the educational base for CEng registration. Visit for further information.
