Overview and admission

Study Type

graduate

Admission semester

Winter Semester only

Area of study

Traffic Engineering

Focus

Intelligent Traffic Systems, Traffic Flow Optimisation, Simulation of Traffic Flows, Interaction Vehicle-Road and Vehicle-Vehicle, Road planning

Target group

The degree in Road Traffic Engineering is designed to train experts who are able to develop and implement complex road traffic concepts that optimise traffic flow, plan and measure road traffic systems that meet telematics requirements, and simulate traffic flow on them. With their professional and linguistic skills, they are able to work in international teams and manage international projects around the world as experts.

Annotation

Efficient road traffic is a significant economic factor all over the world. But the space for the construction of roads is limited. Intelligent traffic management systems and extensive data communication between infrastructure, drivers and vehicles are necessary to ensure the flow of traffic. This requires equipping the street space with information and communication facilities as well as appropriate dimensioning of road traffic systems. Since such traffic projects are increasingly taking place in the international context, engineers are in demand who are able to communicate in a foreign language, mostly English, professionally. The course in Road Traffic Engineering is to train precisely such specialists. They are able to develop and implement complex and traffic-flow-optimised road traffic concepts as well as to dimension and design road traffic systems that meet telematics requirements and to simulate traffic flow on such systems. With their professional and linguistic skills, they are able to work in international teams and manage international projects around the world as experts. Students learn about, for example, data exchange, intelligent traffic systems, traffic flow optimisation, vehicle-road and vehicle-vehicle interactions, dimensioning and design of contemporary road traffic systems, simulation of traffic flows as well as foreign-language specialist communication. The course is taught mainly in English (around 70 per cent).
