Credit points: 15

Subject outline

This subject introduces students to the field of transportation engineering through a variety of contemporary topics, including transport systems and transport modes, traffic flow fundamentals, traffic flow theory, analysis of unsignalised intersections, roundabouts, and signalised intersections, capacity and level of service, transport survey, and transport modelling. Public transport and non-motorised transport are discussed along with intelligent transport systems. Road safety issues and countermeasures are also considered.
