About this program
Master of Transportation Sciences
A modern and international transport system is important for moving people and goods in a local, regional and international context. Transportation is inherently connected to economic growth and the environment but also to urban liveability and health. A continuous increase in traffic volumes for passenger transport and freight forwarding transport, leads to major challenges concerning land use, impact on urban areas, traffic safety issues, traffic flow, atmospheric pollution and travel behaviour.
Since transportation is so multi-faceted, the master of Transportation Sciences at Hasselt University has a multi-disciplinary take on transportation including psychological, social, urban, environmental and infrastructural aspects. Students approach the current and future transportation challenges from different angles, integrating knowledge and skills from different domains.
All applicants should hold at least a university degree or a diploma of higher education equivalent to an (academic) bachelor’s degree.
Sufficient knowledge of English is required and is to be certified by one of the below mentioned tests. Native speakers or holders of a degree, obtained in the English language are exempt from these tests.

An interactive and integrative study approach
In the first semester students from different complementary backgrounds(e.g. Engineering, Social Sciences, Urban Planning) are introduced to fundamental concepts in behaviour, infrastructure, policy, technological advances and transportation modelling. In parallel and together with fellow students you immediately apply what you learn to the case of an international mega-city such as Jakarta, Lima, Dar Es Salaam or Ho Chi Minh City.
The second semester is focused on research skills and specialisation with a choice between Traffic Safety or Transport Policy and Planning. At the core of the second master's year are an intensive 10-week internship and the master thesis, with the option to spend an entire semester abroad for data collection and gaining work experience.
A pronounced international orientation
Since transportation is a cross-border field, it is also important to focus on international aspects of this domain. As a Master in Transportation Sciences we offer you an opportunity to regularly interact with international experts in their field. You can also exchange views and experiences with fellow students from all over the world.
