Dr Yue Huang

The Transport sector is experiencing some step changes in vehicle technology and user behaviour that will have profound effects on our society and the environment. Transport engineers are faced with many challenges as well as opportunities to work with planners, scientists (natural and social), economists and policy makers to meet the demand for transport and in the meantime, to preserve finite resources.

The MSc Transport Planning and Engineering Programme at University of Leeds is taught by word-class academics and researchers with a wide range of expertise in transport. The research-informed teaching, the opportunities for peer learning, the links with industry and the extra-curricular activities we run, will ensure students of any background and aspiration can be inspired and prepared, to tackle global issues in transport.

My research is in the life cycle assessment of transport infrastructure. As sustainability is defined with an evolvement of how we transport people and goods, I found this environmental analysis technique is increasingly needed in all disciplines of transport, from novel pavement materials, to lightweight structures, to circular economy and new energy vehicles. I hope my practical experience as a Chartered Engineer will bring benefits to student experience and the programme curriculum.
