The division of Communications and Transport Systems contributes to the development of society with research and education in the fields of railway and public transport, traffic systems, logistics, mobile telecommunication and construction engineering. The research is organized in nine main areas and we have the responsibility for six educational programmes.

We are one of the largest university groups in Europe within transportation including around 70 researchers, teachers and PhD-students. We work in close cooperation with industry, authorities and research institutes.
