About this program

Master of Transportation Sciences (Distance Learning)

The Master of Transportation Sciences by distance learning is made-to-measure for professionals who want to gain more knowledge about various aspects of transportation. The programme is organized by distance. The course material is made available online through an e-learning platform, including video footage of recorded classes. In addition, you will have access to thousands of e-books, online journals and other resources via our online university library to help you with your studies. Per course unit, at least 1 interactive Question and Answer session is organized approximately halfway through each semester where you can meet the lecturer and fellow students online. Exams are also organized online with online proctoring, to remove the need to travel to an exam venue, thereby reducing the carbon footprint.

The master programme by distance learning can be completed at your own pace from home or any place with access to the internet, in combination with work and/or family life. By its nature, distance learning gives you the flexibility to fit your study time around your professional and personal commitments. The model study track takes 3 years, including the internship and masters' thesis. A full semester is dedicated to doing an internship. The internship can be carried out at your place of employment so you will already benefit from your studies in practice while still earning your degree.

In our master's programme you have two options: study full-time at Hasselt University or combine your master's studies with a job in our flexible distance learning programme.

The Master of Transportation Sciences by distance learning is specifically tailored to the needs of practitioners who want to earn a specialised qualification and broaden their knowledge and work experience in the rapidly changing transportation field. The programme has a pronounced international orientation.
