Learning Outcomes
This is an introductory course to the fundamentals of transport systems planning and spatial analysis of transport networks. The multimodal nature of transportation is demonstrated by an overview of the basic characteristics of ground, air, maritime and inland waterway transportation networks including their operation, design and economic characteristics. The course present the principles of traffic flow, road classification and capacity and initiate students to transport demand analysis, modeling and land use systems interactions. The major goal is to appreciate the multi-dimensionality of transportation issues, emphasizing in: sustainability, land use structure, environment and energy, technology, institutions and process of decision making.
General Competences
  • Retrieve, analyse and synthesise data and information, with the use of necessary technologies
  • Make decisions
  • Work autonomously
  • Work in teams
  • Work in an interdisciplinary team
  • Respect natural environment
