Dealing with Traffic & Transport Engineering Fundamentals

Course Summary

Effective transport is essential in all aspects of society. Countless organisations, and the public, utilise various modes of transport daily to provide services, work and carry out all other day-to-day functions. For those responsible for the management of traffic and transport, it is crucial to have a complex understanding of the fundamentals to ensure all systems and functions can work to maximum productivity.

Engineering plays a vital role in traffic and transport. This ensures all functions are able to work as intended and can completely meet the demands of the consumers. The needs of consumers are constantly changing, making it necessary to constantly evaluate traffic trends and challenges, so transport systems can be adjusted and developed to prevent negative consequences.

Not only does engineering support the consumers, it also benefits the organisations involved. Effective transport and traffic will lead to reduced costs, more effective practices and reduce negative environmental impacts. Correcting monitoring and managing transport systems will also guarantee the health and safety for all customers and workers.

  • To understand the vitality of effective traffic and transport engineering.
  • To analyse and comprehend the characteristics of different traffic modes.
  • To effectively manage various traffic modes to ensure safety and efficiency.
  • To assess potential challenges each traffic mode may face and implement solutions.
  • To identify market demands for suitable traffic mods.
  • To review new engineering technologies and how these can be used to advance existing and future transport and traffic.
  • To accurately plan, design and implement various traffic mods.
  • To describe the role and importance of each traffic mode.

This course is designed for anyone with the responsibility of managing or implementing engineering relating to traffic and transport. It would be most beneficial for:

  • Civil Engineers
  • Data Analysts
  • Strategic Development Managers
