O que eu aprenderei?

Overview

If you are an ambitious numerate graduate, or a practitioner in the field, this Masters degree will equip you with the analytical skills for a rewarding career supporting transport delivery and policy-making at national, regional and local level.

You'll study transport economics, as well as econometrics and cost-benefit analysis. This Masters degree will teach you a suite of economic skills to help promote economic growth within a regulatory framework that minimises any damaging health and environmental impacts, while incentivising the best use of resources.

You’ll also learn economic research techniques to help you develop transport networks that are founded on robust evidence, sustainable and equitable principles, state-of-the-art modelling, accurate data analysis, and an understanding of human psychology.

Throughout this Masters degree, you’ll expand your fluency in:

  • Economic appraisal – to better understand the complex interface between transport and the wider economy
  • Micro-economics – to understand pricing techniques, the importance of economic regulation and the valuation of third party costs and benefits
  • Econometrics – to develop your quantitative models with real world data and test economic theories
  • Independent research – opening the gateway to a career in transport research in either academia or consultancy.

Through being part of a multi-disciplinary project team, you’ll also gain insights into how economics, planning, environmental science, modelling and engineering can work together to design sustainable solutions to global challenges. This industry-inspired approach will enable you to apply your knowledge to real-world issues in the field.

Our Masters degrees have been designed following close consultation with industry and academia to help prepare you for employment in your chosen field. They also address the multi-disciplinary nature of transport – enabling you to make effective decisions for clients, employers and society.
