M.Sc. Programmes: Sustainable Transport, 1.5 years (3 semesters).
The course is intended for the transport and logistics engineers who want to broaden their education in the area of a sustainable transport. The environmental, social and economic impacts, including the emission of pollutants and noise reduction, health protection, efficient use of energy and other natural resources, combined with an appropriate level of transport services should result in a sustainable means of transport satisfying the socio-economic needs.
To provide a competitive educational programme, as well as meeting the expectations of the international market, we offer the course in English. It is addressed to both Polish and foreign students. We provide an opportunity to broaden the attendees knowledge in the following
areas: modern means of transport (alternative sources of propulsion); awareness of the negative consequences for the environment and ways to reduce environmental impacts (environmental assessment tools); methodology of environmental emission measurements; safety and
environmental hazards in rail transport; the role and importance of public transport; urban rail transport; organization of transport systems taking into account sustainable aspects (optimization in transport); sustainable transport planning; traffic engineering and optimization; decision support in transport.
The Faculty of Civil and Transport Engineering offers a unique study programme aiming at educating engineers to support the needs of the sustainable transport. The graduate will be capable of solving complex transportation problems by the applying the syllabus’s modern methods and tools, thereby reducing the negative impact on the natural environment and human health stemming from of the use of various means of transport.
