The MSc Eng programme in Transport and Logistics aims to provide you with the necessary qualifications to design and manage the advanced transportation networks of the future.
Whether we are involved in transporting goods and consumer durables across continents and national borders, or commuting by car, bus, train, or bike, we are all heavily dependent on the efficiency of our transport systems.
Transport by sea, road, rail, and air increases in step with the speed at which society develops. If we are to continue to enjoy economic growth and welfare, we need efficient infrastructures which ensure not only that goods and people can be transported as quickly and inexpensively as possible, but also that this can be done sustainably and consuming minimal resources.
Tackling the logistical challenges associated with this Gordian knot is an important task for engineers, but it also gives rise to a number of exciting specialist areas and new technologies within, e.g., Smart Mobility, Mobility as a Service (MaaS), and Railways of the future (hyperloop).
With an Master’s in Transport and Logistics, you will be an expert in mathematical modelling and IT-based solutions, and you can therefore go on to work with solving society’s infrastructural and mobility challenges through the application of optimization tools, sustainable planning systems, sophisticated modelling techniques and robust evaluation methods.
The study programme takes a model-based approach to engineering, and DTU is one of the few European universities to offer a master’s programme dedicated exclusively to transport and logistics.
Study programme focus
The study programme’s engineering approach to infrastructure includes modelling and computer-based solutions for optimizing transport and logistics, but you will also obtain knowledge of software technology, data analysis, geo-informatics, statistics, operations analysis, finance, planning, and management.
The focus of the programme is on applied transport science—often in relation to methodology and research. Our aim is to provide you with the qualifications and skills needed to classify and address specific transport and logistics challenges, to prepare analyses in support of transport policy decisions (such as sustainable and intelligent transport systems), and to analyse and solve complex logistical planning issues regarding, e.g., supply chains, production, and storage and distribution systems.
DTU is part of an extensive network of private companies and public authorities in both the transport and logistics sector, allowing you to work with real-life issues and projects during your course of study. There is also considerable scope for studying for one or two semesters at one of our international partner universities.
On the MSc Eng programme in Transport and Logistics, you have the opportunity to specialize in one of four study lines:
Logistics and Transport Optimization
Efficient planning and management of transport and logistics systems are vital not only to the individual companies but also to the modern society. Digitalization and automation technologies call for advanced planning methods in transport and logistics. The focus of this study line is on the development of optimisation and simulation tools to analyse supply chains, logistics networks, and terminals from the company perspective. The study line also allows students to focus on the design of public transport systems, including “Mobility as a Service” concepts and transport on-demand.
Transport Planning and Sustainability
This study line focuses on the planning of transport facilities and services. Besides skills on planning of transport systems, travel behaviour, and sustainability, you will learn how to support decisions on future infrastructure and services to ensure the greatest possible benefits to the society from the investments. You will be able to identify the best possible solutions for public transport systems, road networks, and railway transport systems with the aim to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals for the future, creating more efficient, sustainable, and safe transport systems.
Smart Mobility and Systems Analysis
This study line gives you the opportunity to learn and apply advanced concepts and techniques within complex urban systems from both a modelling as well as a systems perspective covering not only transport and mobility but also other aspect, e.g. energy and environmental aspects. You will acquire skills to analyse the vast amount of big data produced every day in city life, learn how to develop advanced models to study its complex interactions and to manage and optimise the urban systems of the future.
Transport, Technology, and Decision Making
Modern technology has a huge potential to change our everyday transport as well as logistics. In this study line, you will acquire skills in development and analysis of technologies and entrepreneurship as well as tools to support management and decision making related to technology both in companies and in society. In combination with your knowledge of transport systems, this will allow you to take a central role in the current technological evolution of our transport and logistics systems.

Transport and Logistics graduates have extensive knowledge of traffic, transport, and logistics combined with software technology, data analysis, finance, planning, and management skills. An obvious career path can be found in the transport sector as, for example, a consultant in private consultancy firms or an engineer in a public infrastructure company. However, with their acquired analytical tools, our graduates are also popular in other industries where analytical skills and qualifications combined with an understanding of complex systems are important.
