Double degree

Basic information

A Master's degree study in the field of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) offers the possibility to study in the double degree form of study in cooperation with partner university.

Study must be undertaken partially at foreign university and student obtains a degree from a partner university as well as from CTU.

The partner university is the Linköping University in Sweden.

To be awarded double degree, completion of at least 30 credits must be undertaken at the host university. Student mobility is possible within the three defined study stages: 1st and 2nd semester, 3rd semester, 4th semester.

Study plans at each partner university are adjusted to complement each other, making study fully compatible and coherent for any combination of studied universities.

Double degree study is only taught in English in all partner universities.

The double degree study is charged by the manipulation fee 500 Euro per semester. This fee covers the costs of study organization and preparation, translations, mutual final exams committees, international thesis’ supervision, etc.


Entrance requirements

For the double degree form of study, strong English knowledge (e.g. TOEFL, FCE, or other comparable exam) is required along with completed bachelor degree in a technical field.

During the double degree study mobility students must complete all requirements at one university (e.g. complete all exams) before moving to the other university. 


Final exams and thesis

The Master thesis is done under the supervision of the main supervisor from the university where student is studying his/her 4th semester as well as under one advisor from the previously studied university. Final exams are organized according to the local regulations of the university where the student is studying his/her 4th semester. Usually there is at least one representative from the other university in the final exam committee.


Course Schedule

Content in the study stages is divided into modules of 6 credits that are consistent at all partner universities and differ only in the particular courses.

In the first study stage (1st and 2nd semester) the modules are as follows:

  • Intelligeng Transport Systems 1
  • GIS
  • Programming and Computer Networking
  • Transportation Systems
  • Mathematical Tools
  • Data and Communication Systems
  • Traffic Modelling and Simulation
  • Telecommunication Applications
  • Specialization in ITS 1
  • Specialization in ITS 2


In the second study stage (3rd semester) the modules are as follows:

  • Intelligeng Transport Systems 1
  • Traffic Engineering
  • Data and Comunication analysis
  • Complex Systems
  • Specialization in ITS 3


In the third study stage (4th semester):

  • work on the Master's thesis, related master project and  and related internship
