Track: Transport Engineering and logistics

Degree: Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering

Credits: 120 ECTS, 24 months

Type: Regular study programme

Mode: Full-time

Start: September

Language of instruction: English

Our industrial world depends on reliable, fast, costeffective, efficient, flexible transport systems and networks, and on the integrated control systems that manage and coordinate these complex processes. Today, however, transportation systems are under enormous pressure as a result of growing demand, competition for available space to create transportation infrastructure, depletion of energy resources, financial and political considerations, environmental concerns, and numerous other factors. To meet the challenges we face, we need novel logistic concepts that influence the organisation of all processes involved, new transport equipment, systems and solutions that address such important concerns as energy efficiency, air and noise pollution, safety and cost.

The essence of Transport Engineering is to develop, design, build and operate marine and transport systems and their equipment as an indivisible part of supply chains and networks.

What will you learn

In this track you will learn how to model, control, design, automate and maintain industrial systems. The curriculum includes courses covering such topics as tools (design, simulation and analysis), machinery, equipment, industrial systems, logistics, operations, information, (distributed) control and optimization. In this track there is a strong emphasis on solving current and foreseen challenges in industry, using both scientific, practical and applied knowledge. All aspects of transportation engineering in the transport and marine industries are addressed including, for example, harbours, airports, container and bulk terminals, ships, material handling, intermodal transport networks and production and distribution systems.
