What will you be getting up to?

The key to a successful economy is the development of safe and efficient transport networks. This is where our graduate transport planners come in. In today’s world we face many transport challenges, such as global warming and pollution, a constantly growing population and demand for travel, migration from rural areas into the cities and ‘disruptive’ changes such as connected autonomous vehicles. We are passionate about creating and contributing to the solutions for these challenges.

Working across the UK, Europe and the rest of the world, we use the latest data and technology to develop and assess transport schemes, strategies and policies.
