Qualification Profile

Bachelor Transportation Engineering

The Bachelor's degree programme in Transportation Engineering comprises six semesters and offers a broadly diversified and theoretically based basic education. Students are to be taught mathematical as well as general engineering fundamentals. Building on this, the students are to acquire sound knowledge of all modes of transport. Basic knowledge from the fields of economics and social sciences as well as architecture is also taught. The acquisition of key qualifications rounds off the education.

Graduates should be able to independently take on demanding tasks in different areas of transport. This includes the basic principles of the construction of means of transport, the planning as well as the construction and operation of transport routes, as well as the processing of interdisciplinary tasks in the topic of mobility and infrastructure.

Master Transportation Engineering

Graduates of the four-semester Master's degree programme in Transportation Engineering should have knowledge of the cross-modal aspects of transport as well as specialised knowledge in two subject areas of transport. Here, the specialisations aviation, automotive engineering, lane-guided traffic or traffic planning & public transport can be chosen. Graduates should have acquired international experience in scientific education as well as knowledge from professional activity through an internship in industry. Graduates should be able to carry out a demanding professional activity in all branches of transport operations.

This includes the planning as well as the technical realisation and testing of transport infrastructure and means of transport. Furthermore, they should be able to independently develop and present traffic engineering and traffic organisation measures. Graduates should be able to carry out qualitative and quantitative evaluations of the operation and its infrastructural, safety and vehicle-related boundary conditions. They should be able to think analytically, recognise complex interrelationships, assess existing problem solutions and develop their own. They should be able to present their results appropriately, work successfully in a group and communicate efficiently with different target groups. Furthermore, they should be enabled to pursue a scientific activity with the goal of a doctorate. Finally, they should be able to recognise novel problems and to design and apply appropriate methods and means to solve them, and to assess their suitability.
