The MSc in Transport and the Environment aims to provide enhanced knowledge and understanding of the transport systems and their impact on the environment, with the programme’s modules directly associated with the concerns of modern transportation, traffic management and environmental impact of transport systems.
The main aim of this programme is to produce postgraduates who have a coherent understanding of transport systems and their impact on the environment, and are able to apply this understanding practically, to the sustainable planning, management and operation of transport systems with an awareness of their responsibilities to society and the environment. The course can also convert good honours graduates in a range of disciplines into marketable postgraduates who should be able to pursue a career in transportation in either the public or private sectors.
The course is underpinned by “World Leading and Internationally Excellent” research (RAE2008) carried out by Newcastle University’s School of Civil Engineering and Geosciences.

- Quantitative Methods
