Moving and being able to transport goods are fundamental needs and necessities of each individual as well as of society. Since the invention of the wheel, the road and transport sector has progressively gained in importance. Transportation engineers plan, build and operate a wide variety of infrastructure, such as urban or rural roads, railway stations or motorways.
Tasks include road design, inner-city traffic engineering and the coordination of public transport. The Master’s degree programme at the Trier University of Applied Sciences offers not only basic knowledge of transportation engineering but also the opportunity to gain specific knowledge in the areas of traffic planning, traffic technology and traffic management. These are ideal starting conditions for a competent and responsible transportation engineer with a variety of tasks and activities as well as a secure professional future.
