Hasselt University Master of Transportation Sciences Scholarships

The Master of Transportation Sciences is happy to announce we now have a call for participants for the ICP programme 2021 “ROAD SAFETY IN LOW & MIDDLE-INCOME COUNTRIES”.

The International Course Programme (ICP) annually offers twelve students from developing countries a scholarship to obtain an MSc in Transportation Sciences (specialization: Road Safety). The programme takes two years and has a specific focus on road safety in developing countries.

Students are trained to identify transportation and road safety issues in order to create innovative solutions by using an integrative approach based on three pillars: the individual (dealing with the human behavior in traffic and how to influence it e.g. intentional and unintentional risk behavior such as drunk driving or cognitive impairments), the environment (e.g. creating self-explaining roads and infrastructure that minimizes crash impact) and the society (e.g. societal norms and translation into policy and enforcement measures). Road safety in this programme is approached as a cross-border field, incorporating elements of psychology, economy, urban planning, environmental studies, engineering and more.
