  • Academic Title
    Sustainability (Transport) MSc, Postgraduate Diploma
  • Course description
    The way the world thinks about transport is changing. We now look for responses beyond ‘predict and provide’, and take a more holistic and longer-term view about the future of transport and the development of sustainable communities. This new integrated programme provides insight into this evolving debate and addresses fundamental issues including ‘how can transport contribute to more sustainable development?’

    It brings together two world-leading centres, the Institute for Transport Studies and the Sustainability Research Institute. Students benefit from the expertise in both institutes and are trained in the analysis and development of solutions to local, regional and global problems.

    Duration
    12 Months Full-time; 24 - 36 Months Part-time

    Institute for Transport Studies
    The Institute for Transport Studies is the largest single academic group involved in transport teaching and research in the UK. It acts as a focus for the transport research interests of a range of departments across the University. It is particularly linked with the School of Civil Engineering and the Leeds University Business School, with both of which it co-ordinates postgraduate programmes, and with the Schools of Computing, Geography, Psychology and Environment.

    A notable characteristic of the work of the Institute is the close and successful working arrangements achieved between a wide range of disciplines, including economics, civil engineering, urban geography, planning, psychology, mathematics, statistics, operational research and computer studies.

    The quality of research at the Institute has been recognised by the award of the highest grade (5*A) in the HEFCE's Research Assessment Exercise.

    What you study
    The programme considers the interactions between the economy, society, the environment and governance and examines the design, evaluation and implementation of policies. Students examine emerging drivers for change such as climate change policies and corporate governance initiatives and develop skills to help deliver integrated transport solutions.

    Students learn to:

        * evaluate frameworks for understanding sustainable development
        * conduct strategic reviews of transport and land-use policy
        * consider the roles that governments, markets and community groups can play in encouraging sustainability
     
       * undertake sustainability assessments
        * evaluate key policy interventions
        * apply a range of tools and techniques to real-world case studies.
