The M.Sc. Traffic and Transport aims to cover the disciplines of economics, civil engineering and mechanical engineeringinterdisciplinary in the field of transport. Contents such as rail technology, road construction, logistics, automotive technology, commercial or air transport should be approached from an interdisciplinary perspective within the course. For this purpose, the basic knowledge and skills from those areas that were not previously covered by a bachelor's degree must be worked through in the first semester of the degree. Then the knowledge in all three specialist disciplines is deepened and a specialization is undertaken by choosing a main discipline. The central aspect of the course is the broad technical focus with simultaneous focus on topics. An additional internship serves the practical qualification of the students. The theoretical knowledge should be used in industrial companies, Administrations or consulting companies with tasks in the field of transport or in transport companies are practiced and thereby prepares them for a later activity in this professional field. During the course of studies, stays abroad for study semesters or to work on the master’s thesis are also possible. A mentor system is used to support the creation of an individual study and examination plan, which must be drawn up before the first subject semester.
The main field of activity of transport engineers includes planning, operation, organization and management of transport facilities, means of transport and transport services . Located at the interface of the disciplines of economics, civil engineering and mechanical engineering, they deal with infrastructural projects for transport by road, air, rail or water. In addition to the planning, construction and maintenance of, in particular, public transport routes, the logistical organization is of particular interest to work.
In addition to studying, it is important to gain your own practical experience in relevant institutions at an early stage, to demonstrate your general suitability for practice and to establish contacts. The prospect of a good position is increased by the willingness to move professionally, also abroad. A good command of the English language is particularly recommended if you have an international focus.
