About this course

Design and transport lies at the heart of all developed societies and connected urban systems. This MSc offers graduates the opportunity to study the world of complex transportation infrastructures and technologies and develop their specialist design and problem-solving interests.

The programme is not focused on any one particular mode of transport; rather, the emphasis is on gaining understanding of complexity, devising strategies for dealing with wicked problems, and developing your technical, practical, creative and professional skills. Acknowledging the rapidly changing world of transport design and related systems, we cover a broad range of transport themes – from passengers to freight and cargo – within the automotive, aerospace and marine industries. Issues of design concept generation and development, modelling of designs and systems, human factors, sustainability and collaborative group working will be addressed.

There is a strong ethos of cross-disciplinary and transcultural collaborative working. All design projects are underpinned by sound research activities that combine with critical and creative thinking, enabling you to develop innovative design solutions for land, sea, air and space transport, which are grounded in usability, functionality and sustainability.  You will have the chance to practise creative thinking and design visualisation, while developing your knowledge of engineering science, materials, manufacturing and management. You'll work on ‘live’ industry briefs, progressing your ideas from initial concepts to drawing, rendering, modelling and production.
