Ten UK universities provide taught transport Masters courses:
Imperial College London and UCL
UCL – The Bartlett
West of England (UWE).
Information on the courses they provide and links to their websites can be found at www.tps.org.uk/profession/degrees/masters-courses.
This site also shows those courses that have been approved for award of the Chartered Transport Planning Professional (CTPP) qualification, an important criterion for those intending to pursue a career in transport planning. More information on the CTPP is available at
Some of the Masters courses are also accredited as providing the further learning required for award of Chartered Engineer to those without an accredited MEng.
While completing a CTPP approved or CEng accredited transport Masters provides you with the knowledge required for award of the CTPP or CEng, completing any transport Masters is an opening to a wide range of careers including the engineering design and maintenance, managing and operating transport systems, as well as supply chain and logistics management - almost anything to do with moving people and goods. A career in transport provides opportunities to help us all work towards effective sustainability, as well as benefitting the economy.
