Transport & Planning
How we can solve congestion? Why can't we just build more roads and railways? The section Transport & Planning at the Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences conducts scientific research and provides education about the planning and operation of transport systems.
We work in three main areas:
- Modelling of transport systems, focusing on the dynamic interaction between transport supply and demand, looking in particular at travel and driving behavior and the impacts of ICT.
- The design of intermodal transport networks and the associated node and link infrastructures.
- Traffic management and traffic flow theory. We focus on empirical research, modelling and optimization.
We provide transport and planning courses in the Bachelor programme Civil Engineering, we offer a Transport & Planning trackin the MSc programmes Civil Engineering and Transport Infrastructure and Logistics.
For post graduates we offer PhD positions and training in cooperation with the research school TRAIL and different post academic training in cooperation with the research school TRAIL and different post academic training courses in cooperation with PAO
