Transport Management Bachelor of Science

Aston University

Nothing can happen without transport - it’s a fundamental part of our society, enabling people to do the things they want and need to do.

On our dedicated transport management course, you’ll gain the knowledge, skills and experience you need to work on some of the biggest transport infrastructure projects around. Whether you want to be part of the transformational HS2 project or are thinking about using your skills to work on some of the biggest sustainability challenges we face, you’ll be well equipped by the time you graduate.

Our Transport Management programme, which is part of the civil engineering and infrastructure cluster here at Aston, examines the economic, operational, societal and environmental issues related to the transport and distribution industries.

The skills you will gain are in high demand and, as a graduate, you will be able to work on developing and building transport solutions that are more efficient, more sustainable and future-proof.

Health and safety considerations are implicit throughout, and the science and mathematical skills behind infrastructure will underpin your studies. Gaining project management knowledge and building professional relationships are other key areas of your studies.

The course includes examples, illustrations, visits and case studies from the transport sector, with your studies incorporating all the relevant management skills: accounting, marketing, human resources and operations management. All are set within the context of the transport related industries, with a focus on including passenger and freight modes.

In addition, you’ll be learning and living in the middle of Britain’s second city, giving you real life, every day experience of the challenges faced by the people and organisations responsible for keeping people and products moving.
