Transportation Logistics


The specialization transportation logistics provides students with knowledge about the transport networks, the design of transportation infrastructure and the means of transport that are used for the transportation of goods. This specialization is heavily interdisciplinary and is offered in collaboration with the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, the Faculty of Georesources and Materials Engineering and the Faculty of Economics. There is a specific focus on the infrastructure requirements for transport networks, support systems and their behavior. We strive to provide our students with the best possible education and therefore offer a comprehensive overview of the entire system including the technical vehicle related topics provided by multiple institutes such as the Chair of Railway Engineering and Transport and the Institute of Transport Science (IFS) as well as the Institute of Automotive Engineering (IKA).

The Transport Engineering and Mobility specialization transportation logistics qualifies graduates for demanding work in consulting and engineering offices, positions in the automotive industry as well as public administration positions. Due to our students comprehensive understanding of the complete system and its actors, processes and measures, they are qualified for management positions as well as scientific careers. The program does not focus exclusively on the means of transport, but rather enables students to acquire specialized knowledge about the interface between the infrastructure and operating resources.
