Transport & Planning
How can we solve congestion? Why can't we just build more roads and railways? The Department Transport & Planning at the Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences conducts scientific research and provides education about the planning and operation of transport systems.
Our themes are:
- Coordinated and Cooperative Network Traffic Operations and Management
- Reliable Multimodal Transport Systems
- Cooperative and automated driving
- Active Mode Mobility
We provide transport and planning courses in the Bachelor programme Civil Engineering, we offer a Transport & Planning track in the MSc programmes Civil Engineering and participate in the interfaculty MSc programme Transport Infrastructure and Logistics.
