Abstract: Transport CPS is a major area of growth and investment in many countries, but there is a significant shortage of engineers with the correct skills to build safe, secure, and efficient TCPS. It is suggested that a much broader education is required in CPS than has traditionally been the case for degree and Masters’ level students. CPS developers will need to be knowledgeable about natural, applied, and social sciences. The curriculum for a TCPS engineer emerges as a vast range of knowledge requirements and it is suggested that ideally students will graduate with a T-shaped curriculum vitae that provides for a broad knowledge of many subjects, and a deep knowledge of one or two. Studies into the appropriate curriculum for CPS have been conducted since the early 2000s, but it is noted that many of these failed to give adequate weight to topics in the social sciences and to ethics. A framework for TCPS graduate and post-graduate education is provided: delivery of the curriculum must ensure students are taught in a transdisciplinary manner and develop an holistic approach to TCPS development and operation.
