Institute for Sustainability



We are a research network which brings together a wide range of transport technology related activities.

Our vision

To be Europe's leading transport technology research University.

Transport technology is one of the central multidisciplinary themes in research and consultancy at Newcastle University.

The University has transport technology research expertise in all modes but particularly in:

  • Urban Mobility
  • Marine Technology
  • Rail Technology
  • Low-Carbon Vehicles
  • Intelligent Transport
  • Freight Logistics

We intend to capitalise on our knowledge and experience by coordinating transport technology research at the University level under the banner transportNewcastle.

This will enable the University to combine its strengths to address transport issues regionally, nationally and internationally in a more coordinated way.

Links with industry

Our researchers have extensive experience of industrial collaboration, especially in the North East region. They have business, consultancy and analytic capabilities, and a wide range of laboratories and testing facilities.

Academic teaching

A number of Schools teach both undergraduate and postgraduate courses, allowing students to have an opportunity to study on accredited degrees in transport-related streams. Teaching in schools is supported by internationally recognised and industrially relevant research and by specialised facilities.

We are currently redeveloping our webpages. In the mean time for further information contact:
