The networked use of all forms of transport as well as the continuous construction, operation and maintenance of infrastructure facilities that enable the insurance of mobility within our societies are key challenges that engineers face. The preservation of cost-intensive infrastructure is of particular importance when considering the limited budgets of the state and challenges that come with demographic change. New requirements for the sustainable and environmentally sound operation of transport systems such as global climate change and the ever-important reduction of emissions can only be comprehensively resolved through an integrated view of construction, operation and transportation. The specialization transport aims prepare students to deal with key issues relating to the construction and operation of transport infrastructure, mobility and the general transport industry; ultimately allowing them to tackle all of the issues presented above.
The program pursues the goal of providing students with comprehensive and in-depth knowledge in the field of transport. Course in spatial, regional and urban planning as well as in the construction and operation of roads, rail links and airports. Traffic management and traffic management are further important components of this program. Students are given the freedom to focus on either the planning, operation, construction or scientific details of transportation through a wide range of electives. This program offers both scientific and practice-oriented experiences.
Our graduates are qualified for the demanding work in engineering, industry and public administration as well as for transportation companies. Nonetheless, our graduates are also qualified to work in scientific environment such as academia. In addition, graduates have the professional qualifications required for traineeship for higher technical administrative career paths.
