Study objectives

The Transportation Systems Technology degree programme trains graduates for working at the interface between development, operations, administration and marketing, providing them with interdisciplinary skills that can be applied anywhere.

Graduates skilled for specialist and leadership positions with multi-model technical knowledge along with administrative and organisational skills in logistics are attractive to employers for work in the operational, administrative and planning areas of companies or authorities.

The degree programme is semi-technical and provides students with attractive, relevant and future-oriented skills using modern teaching methods and in an integrated context with other degree programmes.

Graduates will have the skills to solve problems in transportation at the interface between engineering sciences, business administration and information technology in an integrative and cooperative way. This means they can think like an engineer with a systematic approach, apply quantitative methods and models, and use these to solve practical problems as well as communicate easily with technical experts from a range of fields. Their abilities will be primarily useful in the efficient operation, analysis and improvement of existing transportation solutions.
