Master of Science in Transport, Infrastructure and Logistics
INTRODUCTION Delft University of Technology already offered students partial study paths in the field of Transport, Infrastructure and Logistics, as part of several Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degree programmes. After exploring the possibility of running a joint Master of Science degree, the Board of Delft University of Technology created the opportunity for an interfaculty Master’s programme in the field of Transport, Infrastructure and Logistics. In agreement with the other Dutch Universities of Technology, it was also decided that this would be the only Master of Science Degree programme in the combined area of Transport, Infrastructure & Logistics to be run at these three universities. The two-year MSc programme in Transport, Infrastructure and Logistics (MSc TIL) at Delft University of Technology offers students the opportunity to gain the degree of Master of Science in Transport, Infrastructure and Logistics. As the field of Transport, Infrastructure and Logistics is highly interdisciplinary, the following three faculties of the Delft University of Technology jointly operate this programme: • Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences (CEG); • Faculty of Mechanical, Maritime & Materials Engineering (3mE); • Faculty of Technology, Policy and Management (TPM). FOCUS ON THE FIELD OF TRANSPORT, INFRASTRUCTURE AND LOGISTICS AND THE STUDY PROGRAMME Well-functioning transport and logistics systems form the basis for economic and social prosperity in societies, both in the present day and in the future. Designing, constructing, implementing and sustaining such transport and logistics systems are challenging tasks for policy makers, planners, engineers and managers that work, or want to work, in this field. TIL engineers will be involved in the planning, analysis, control, research and design of man-made transport and logistics systems in a societal context, including (fixed) facilities, vehicles, regulations and organisations in particular. This involves the systematic and responsible application of science and

Our two-year (120 ECTS) MSc TIL study programme offers: • The fundamentals and essentials of transport. The programme offers participants the opportunity to personalise the way they fulfil this programme by means of its broad set of elective profiles (sets of related courses) and (separate) elective courses.

Knowledge gained during the fundamental and/or essential courses may also be a prerequisite for some of the courses within specialisations.Elective specialisations (at least 34 ECTS) The elective specialisations are a means for the student to specialise in and focus on a specific field. If knowledge has already been gained from following an equivalent course on a BSc programme (this applies to all courses on the MSc TIL programme) then the student is exempt from that course and will have more freedom in choosing other elective courses.

Rijsenbrij (J. Basis of this course is a study of the dynamics of the operational process and the equipment. Automation is often necessary to increase the capacity or to reduce operating costs of industrial systems on one hand while maintaining a sufficient level of operational accuracy on the other hand. (1) To categorise industrial systems and identify properties that determine their performance. (4) to experience the difference between automation in concept and automation in practice. In an automated system data communication is important to ensure reliable performance. (2) to describe mathematically the transport process and the behaviour of equipment. In this course the automation of a number of typical systems will be studied and the dificulties and opportunities of new technologies. (3) to determine the requirements to automate an industrial system in terms of control algorithms and equipment involved.

Mix of general tools useful when solving stochastic problems and models for specific applications. Emphasis both on problem solving (applications) and theory. We study among other things: applications of renewal models and renewal reward models, queueing processes and discrete Markov decision processes. The course will be renewed during the term, since it is given for the first time since the introduction of the mandatory course on stochastic processes (Wi4202).

Study Goals

To master a number of techniques from stochastic operations research. To learn to recognize how they may be applied. Sharpen problem solving skills. Lectures during third and fourth dimester or reader course, depending on the number of students.
