For students

We offer a full-time on-campus 2-year Master of Transportation Sciences programme, where students can choose between 2 specialisations: Traffic Safety or Transport Policy and Planning. In the 2nd master year, students can choose to do an internship to gain hands-on experience in the field of transportation or opt for an alternative set of courses instead.

We also have 10 ICP scholarships per year, sponsored by VLIR-UOS for excellent students from developing countries who wish to obtain a Master of Transportation Sciences degree, with a specialisation in Traffic Safety to improve the traffic safety situation in their home countries.

For professionals working in the field of transportation we also offer a part-time master of Transportation Sciences by distance learning. This programme has a fixed curriculum that combines courses of both specialisations.

Our research

The Transportation Research Institute (IMOB) conducts research within the fields of transportation and road safety, focusing on travel behaviour. We do this by studying the interaction between behaviour, infrastructure and technology. That interaction is complex, but the resulting insights enable us to predict mobility flows and make traffic safer. Within this focus, there are interfaces with other disciplines such as health, climate and tourism. For this, we use numerous tools, including in-house developed data models, driving simulators and drones.
