Transport modellers use specialist computer software to help with the design and development of transport models to forecast future usage, meaning potential problems can be predicted and avoided in advance.
Salaries typically range depending on location and level of responsibility.
Salaries and career options improve with chartered status.
As a specialist role, a BSc Honours Degree in engineering, construction or transport planning in England; the equivalent L6 NVQ / HNC in Wales, or the Scottish equivalent, will most likely be required. Some positions will require a Masters Degree as well, or chartered status with a relevant body.
However, experience is often very important too, so entrants with other qualifications might be considered; for example, those with extensive experience in modelling software or in the field of transport management.
