Transport Engineering

Standard Period of Study: 4 semesters
Start of studies: winter or summer semester
Teaching Language: German

This study program is not being offered in English. For further information please visit the German version of the study program.

The Master’s study program contrasts with Bachelor’s studies in its wide range of choices. In the program, you will choose three subjects to focus on from the following areas:

  • Bridge and tunnel construction
  • Railroad and public transit
  • Electric propulsion
  • Land-use and environmental planning
  • Motor vehicles
  • Motor vehicle mechatronics
  • Planning and participation
  • Rolling stock
  • Road planning and construction
  • Internal combustion engines
  • Traffic planning and traffic engineering

You learn theoretical foundations and methods that you put to the test in practical examples. In exercises and project studies, the students apply what they learned independently and so are prepared for professional activity.


You should possess a thorough knowledge in the following areas:

  • Methods for designing and measuring transport networks and individual traffic installations in both road and rail traffic
  • Planning and operation of individual and public transport systems Determining and forecasting transport demand
  • Cost-benefit analysis of transport-related measures Cause and effect relationships between land-use and transport planning
The quality of this degree program has been certified.
