Regardless of which means of transport we use ourselves, whether we order a book or a supermarket is delivered - efficient transport systems are a basic requirement of a modern society. Modern traffic systems should enable changes of location to be made quickly, safely and reliably.
Traffic engineers plan and operate these traffic systems. Based on an analysis of the spatial structure and mobility behavior, they design the transport offer. They forecast traffic demand as well as construction and operation costs.

The bachelor's degree in traffic engineering is an engineering degree in which advanced mathematics and technical mechanics are compulsory modules. There are also events on the basics of business administration and computer science.




The sum of the points achieved in the Abitur certificate is divided: for Abitur certificates with a maximum number of points of 900 points is divided by 30, for Abitur certificates with a maximum number of points of 840 points is divided by 28 (max. 30 points) .

Other selection criteria  (max. 5 points):

  • Completed professional training in a mathematical, scientific or technical training occupation or previous professional practice relevant to the course (even without completed training),
  • practical activities,
  • extracurricular achievements, e.g. prizes and awards.

The scores from the school and other selection criteria are added (max. 35 points). A ranking list is created on the basis of the number of points determined in this way.
