Master of Science (Transport Planning)

INTRODUCTION

Proper movement of goods and people are essential to the country development. For a developing country, the need for high quality transport and infrastructure facilities is vital to cater for both the urban and rural development. The right policy and workable planning and engineering input are therefore very pertinent to the developing countries.

To enhance the professional understanding of the links between the transport services, land use and economic development, the Department of Urban and Regional Planning is offering a M.Sc. course in Transport Planning tailored to the needs of most developing nations. The course is recognised by The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transportation (CILT) and the Chartered Institute of Transport (United Kingdom).

PROGRAMME OBJECTIVE

The course analyses the transport situation and the related policies and strategies in cities of both developed and developing countries. It examines current urban transport problems, the needs for movement and access, the existing systems of transport and the experiences of the public and private sectors in providing transport facilities.

Both traffic management and road design requirements for the developing countries are emphasized.
