A master programme for practitioners with a unique international profile

In our master programme you have two options: study full-time at Hasselt University or combine your master studies with a job in our flexible distance learning programme.

The Master of Transportation Sciences by distance learning is specifically tailored to the needs of practitioners who want to earn a specialised qualification and broaden their knowledge and work experience in the rapidly changing transportation field. The programme has a pronounced international orientation. Students from all over the world join this programme and the exchange of experience and knowledge between the international student group brings added value to the course.

Made to measure for professionals who want to combine job and studies

The content and the degree of the programme are equal to the full-time programme, but the courses are organized in such a way that students are able to combine a job with their studies. The course material will be made available on an e-learning platform which enrolled students can access from home. The internship and master thesis can be carried out at your place of employment, so you will already benefit from your studies in practice while still earning your degree.

The distance learning programme can be completed at your own pace and for every course unit that you complete, a certificate can be requested. The full programme can be completed in 3 years, including the internship and the master thesis.
