In the Transportation lab, students are split into small groups and introduced to the basics of traffic planning and traffic engineering using computer-aided microscopic and macroscopic traffic models. This is also the place where they conduct exercises in road and railway system design.

The Nuremberg Institute of Technology was founded shortly before the first railway between Nuremberg and Fürth was constructed, making it one of the oldest universities of applied sciences in Bavaria. In light of this, we believe we have an obligation here in Nuremberg to competently and broadly represent the very particular aspects of transportation as part of civil engineering. Only in this way do we believe we can ensure that, upon completing their studies, our young students have a broad enough education to see their job as a service to our society in their future careers and to adapt to changes in the job market.  

From the 3rd semester of the bachelor’s degree to the 10th semester at the end of a master’s programme, the university offers a plethora of cross-faculty modules on the subject of traffic and transport. Our students are introduced to the full range of traffic-related subjects through lectures and practicals on the economic aspects of traffic systems, achieving sustainable mobility, computer-aided calculation processes in traffic planning and engineering, building and operating intermodal transport hubs, such as railway stations, airports, and sea ports, as well as modern building techniques used in road and railway construction.
