Logistics and transport are essential to modern society. Engineers have always participated in the creation of new infrastructure, but technological and societal developments have made infrastructure problems increasingly complicated. Now logistics planning and management have developed into separate scientific disciplines and specializations.

The MSc in Engineering in Transportation and Logistics is one of the few full MSc programmes in Europe dedicated entirely to transportation and logistics. The engineering approach to transport and logistics implies mathematical modelling and computer-based solutions to optimize transport and logistics.

The students obtain in-depth knowledge about traffic, transportation and logistics in combination with skills in software technology, data analysis and statistics, operations research, geo-informatics, economics, planning theory and management. The student may choose to focus mainly on one mode, e.g. road or rail transportation, or the focus can be multi-modal.

The study can focus on applications used for real-life problems or on methods and research so that graduates wishing to pursue a PhD and research career will be prepared for this.

Career Opportunities 

On completion of the degree program, engineers obtain a range of appointments within the transportation and logistics sector such as with:  
  • Product manufacturers and distributors
  • Transport companies
  • Transport infrastructure owners
  • Public authorities
  • Methodology development and software technology

Danmarks Tekniske Universitet's hovedadresse ligger i Lyngby 10 kilometer nord for København, og det er primært her at DTU studerende bliver undervist. Du kan tage turen til DTU i Lyngby med bil eller ved hjælp af offentlige transportmidler. Der kører flere busser næsten lige til døren og Lyngby Station ligger 2 km. væk, men også her er der gode busforbindelser, f.eks. bus nr. 300S mod Nærum eller bus nr. 190. Begge har stoppested på Anker Engelunds Vej.
