CIV3703 Transport Engineering

Units : 1
Faculty or Section : Faculty of Health, Engineering and Sciences
School or Department : School of Engineering
Student contribution band : Band 2
Grading basis : Graded
Version produced : 20 May 2022

Overview

This course introduces students to the basic understanding of transportation engineering which emphasises the need for good transport planning and operation of transport facilities to ensure safe and efficient movement of people and goods. Students will learn about transport system, planning models, traffic studies, traffic analysis, geometric design of roads and pavement materials, as well as pavement design and maintenance.

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.
