Develop advanced knowledge and skills in transport and logistics engineering and management and their social, economic and technological impact.
The Master of Engineering (Transport Systems Engineering) focuses on the fundamentals of transport and logistics and the development of solutions for specific problems in planning, design, management and operation of transport infrastructure and facilities.
Designed to deepen the knowledge of engineers working with road, traffic or public transport authorities and logistics and supply chain organisations, it addresses the increasing need for engineers to have a comprehensive knowledge of transportation and logistics engineering.
You will study courses specifically designed to meet the demand for engineers with high-level skills in:
- sustainable transport systems
- intelligent transport systems
- railway infrastructure
- rail transport engineering
- advanced transport infrastructure
- urban logistics
- emergency and humanitarian logistics
- reverse logistics
- supply chain management
You will enhance your career prospects by developing advanced knowledge and skills in transport and logistics engineering and management. You will gain the skills to step up as a project leader, consultant or manager with the expertise to lead the implementation of new technologies and operating practices in transport and logistics.
With a focus on project-based and multi-disciplinary learning you will develop professional engineering competencies in teamwork, leadership, problem-solving, communication and research.
International student visa holders can only study full-time.
This program incorporates blended learning which includes face-to-face teaching and intensive and e-learning delivery modes.
You will also undertake comprehensive laboratory work and industry visits. Through the laboratory program you will use specialist equipment for both testing and researching problems and solutions.
Through common core courses you will engage with the wider engineering community, enhancing your experience and enabling cross-disciplinary learning.
You'll have access to online resources through the myRMIT student portal.
The program includes exposure to a range of Australian and international companies through industry visits.
Industry plays a vital role in the development, delivery and assessment of the program with input and membership on the Program Advisory Committee (PAC), which comprises experienced industry representatives as well as academic staff and alumni.
The program also facilitates networking opportunities with fellow engineering masters students from a range of disciplines and industries.
There is an increasing demand for transport and logistics engineers in the public and private sectors.
With the Port of Melbourne being Australia’s largest container and general cargo port, Victoria has a pre-eminent national role in transport and logistics.
Employers need transportation and logistics engineers in all areas ranging from transport planning and modelling, traffic impact analysis, road safety audit, manufacturing, transportation and physical distribution, warehousing, port management, aviation and supply chain management.
Professional recognition and accreditation
Engineers Australia accreditation will be sought for this program in accordance with accreditation timelines.
