|ASCED code :||030909 - Transport Engineering|
|Grading basis :||Graded|
The planning, construction and operation of civil engineering works is critical to the wellbeing of societies within the modern world. It is important that the graduate civil engineer has a broad understanding of the role and planning of transport systems. As the majority of civil engineers working in the transport sector are concerned with road transport, a greater emphasis will be placed on this mode of transport. Students of this course will be assumed to have a basic understanding of statistical techniques, spreadsheeting, soil mechanics, engineering materials and technical drafting skills.
