The Technology and management of transport study program is designed as a professionally focused bachelor’s degree program, preparing students primarily for jobs in transport, logistics, industrial enterprises, and public administration.
The concept of the professionally focused bachelor study program Technology and management of transport is based on the assumption that the graduate can solve the interconnection of transport and economic, social and cultural development of the state, individual regions and municipalities. Given that this development also has a foreign dimension, the graduate can take into account transport and transportation in the international position of the state and individual regions. The study program is designed as a professionally focused study program.
The aim of the bachelor study program Technology and management of transport is to educate specialists in the field of transport and transportation. This program has long been demanded by business and public institutions, not only in the South Bohemian region. Studying the proposed program will enable graduates to acquire both full-time and combined forms of prospective technical knowledge, knowledge, and skills required in the labor market. An integral part of the study is a professional semester practice, which allows graduates to flexible transition into future employment and saves employers the costs necessary to adapt to graduate.
The development of expertise within the Technology and management of transport program is carried out, among other things, in the form of compulsory optional subjects. Compulsory optional subjects are grouped into two groups, namely Passenger Transport and Freight Transport. Within the groups, students will acquire expertise and skills in passenger transport and freight transport.
- Freight Transport – Specialization Freight Transport is focused on the study of subjects that deal with freight transport, especially in rail and road transport. The specialization consists of three consecutive subjects, namely Freight Technology, Intermodal Transport, and Forwarding. The student will be acquainted with technological procedures in rail freight transport and road freight transport.
The graduate of the Freight Transport specialization will be able to independently solve transport-logistic tasks, choose the appropriate mode of transport and means of transport for the given commodity, design and manage the optimum mode of transport of partial transport processes, suitable handling and mechanization means. , ensure transport including transport of dangerous goods, oversized consignments, perishable goods, live animals, etc.
- Passenger Transport – Specialization Passenger transport is focused on the study of subjects that specifically address the issue of passenger transport, especially in rail and road transport, and partly in water and air transport. The specialization is made up of three consecutive subjects, namely the Technology of Passenger Transport, Technology and Traffic Management – Public Transport and Technology and Traffic Management – IDS. Students will learn the basic concepts in the field of passenger transport in individual transport fields, will understand the specifics of passenger transport, be able to characterize new trends in passenger transport, understand technological issues and urban public transport management with an emphasis on practical operation in large cities and urban agglomerations. The student will also become acquainted with the problems of a solution, design, and organization of integrated transport systems.
The graduate of the Passenger Transport specialization will be able to characterize individual types of passenger transport, areas of competence, regularities, and specifics, will be able to describe the principles of technology and public transport management and use the knowledge to solve practical tasks in this area (public transport network analysis, proposal of improvement measures based on the identified deficiencies). The graduate will also be able to characterize foreign transport systems, apply professional knowledge into practice and design a coordinated transport model including tariff and transport conditions.
