Well-designed transport and logistics systems are fundamental to individual mobility, commerce, welfare and economic growth. With ever-increasing volumes of traffic and goods, future transport systems face a huge challenge: How to balance the need for speedy, efficient and sustainable transport with the negative impacts of congestion, pollution and fatalities? The answer lies in a tighter integration of telecommunications and information technology. Autonomous driving is already a reality, and the electrification of roads has begun. Vehicles are connected to each other and to the infrastructure in smart cities, enabling the collection of all sorts of data for analysis and management of movements of people and goods.
Two profiles: Traffic and Logistics
Through a multi-disciplinary approach, you will acquire engineering and managerial skills to understand, develop and control future transport and logistics systems. You will use optimisation and simulation tools and study mobile communication, positioning systems, road safety and project management.
For the second and third semester you may choose between these two profiles:
The analysis of travel patterns and traffic flows in order to design well-functioning traffic systems using computer-based models
Supply chain planning and modelling. How the flow of products, services and information between producers and customers can be optimised to satisfy supply and demand in the most efficient way possible.
You may also pick and mix courses from these profiles, or add courses in Smart Cities or Internet of Things. The final semester is dedicated to your thesis which is usually written in close collaboration with a company, city, or government body.
You need strong skills in mathematics and an analytical mind – programming experience is a distinct advantage. You will carry out group-based lab practicals and project work. Many courses are continuously assessed through hand-in assignments and reports. Oral and written communication is an integral part of the programme, to prepare students for international management positions.
You will be at the frontline of Swedish transportation research. Linköping University is coordinating the Swedish National Postgraduate School of ITS (Intelligent Transport Systems). We are also a member of ITS-EduNet, the network for Training and Education on Intelligent Transport Systems.
- Bachelor’s degree with a major in an engineering subject, or equivalent. The Bachelor’s degree (equivalent to a Swedish Kandidatexamen) shall be from an internationally recognised university.
- 22 ECTS credits in mathematics/applied mathematics and/or application of mathematics relevant for the programme, including courses in linear algebra, calculus and mathematical statistics.
- English corresponding to the level of English in Swedish upper secondary education (English 6/B). This is normally attested by means of an internationally recognised test.
Selection for the January application round is based on merit rating (grade tariff) at three levels. If necessary, applicants within the same merit group will be selected by lot.
- Group 1: High
- Group 2: Good
- Group 3: Low
Master of Science in Transportation Systems Engineering, 120 credits
