In densely populated countries such as the Netherlands hundreds of kilometres of traffic gridlock, air pollution, traffic accidents and delayed public transportation are all part of the daily fare. The MSc track Transport & Planning trains people to play a central role in resolving such problems. T&P engineers, for example, work on clever ideas to manage traffic flows and prevent congestion, they develop public transport systems or develop infrastructural plans. A characteristic of the topics on which they work is that these are often in the news and are high on the political agenda.
The objective is to get insight and practice in the design and use of mathematical models for the estimation of transport demand in the framework of major strategic transportation planning. The course consists of a number of lectures and several exercises in OmniTRANS.
