Transport

Pursue a career in the ever-growing global transport sector
Develop your critical understanding about the engineering, urban planning, and business management of transport. Understand the prevalence and identification of transport systems and core capabilities for analysing and designing them.

Our Master of Transport is Australia’s first interdisciplinary degree, focusing on the engineering, urban planning, and business management of transport.

This professional full-time degree is ideal for graduates wanting to pursue a career in the global transport sector or professionals already in the field wanting to upskill.

It is designed to further your ability for strategic and logical reasoning, deduction, network and temporal data analysis, and expand your proficiencies in broad interdisciplinary analysis.

Our Master of Transport is truly multidisciplinary, allowing professionals the opportunity to undertake a unique combination of units spanning engineering, architecture and business throughout their studies.

It also leverages the strengths of the Institute of Transport and Logistics Studies, which has exceptionally strong links with industry and is recognised by the Australian Government as a centre of excellence in research and education, and the ongoing transport engineering research being undertaken by the Faculty of Engineering.

Candidates for the Master of Transport complete 72 credit points, consisting of:

  • 48 credit points of core units
  • 18 credit points of electives
