    Transportation drives our society

    A modern and international transport system is important for moving people, goods and information in a local, regional and (inter)national context. Moreover it is connected to economic growth! A continuous increase in traffic volumes, for passenger transport as well as freight forwarding transport, leads to major challenges concerning land use, impact on urban areas, traffic safety issues, traffic flow, atmospheric pollution and travel behaviour.

    An international multidisciplinary master programme

    The international Master Programme in Transportation Sciences of Hasselt University is a multidisciplinary master programme, which trains students and practitioners to identify transportation and traffic safety issues and to come up with solutions by themselves, taking into account several parameters: economy, society, urban developmen, environment and infrastructure. Several transport and traffic safety issues are thus highlighted in an overall multidisciplinary perspective.

    A pronounced international orientation

    Since transportation is a cross-border field, it is also important to put the focus on the international aspects related to this domain.
