The Master of Science Programme in Transportation Systems (TS) of Technische Universität München (TUM) will provide graduates with the necessary knowledge and skills to deal with this situation. Students will learn to design and operate modern transportation systems and integrated inter-modal transport management systems – and will be prepared to work in dynamically growing market of transport and mobility.
The Master programme consists of 4 semesters and takes 24 months overall. It is based on lectures combined with exercises. The exercises are based as much as possible on real life studies. The lectures and the exercises will provide students with a deep theoretical understanding of the transportation system.
The programme includes a project seminar. The project seminar provides the opportunity to explore scientific investigations and practical solutions in an experimental environment. In an international and interdisciplinary group, the participants will be asked to work out a survey concept and realize a field work as well as to analyse and discuss their findings with lecturers/research staff.
An internship of 150 hours in transportation related industry or authority together with a 4-month master’s thesis complete the programme.
