This module builds on theoretical aspects of transport planning and engineering to introduce a more applied approach covering the state-of-the-art in transport modelling. The module is divided into three intermixed strands: 'Transport Demand Models' for predicting overall travel patterns; 'Microscopic Transport Models' for predicting operations of individual road junctions; and ‘Regional Transport Models' for analysing impacts of transport systems across wide areas. The overall aim is to develop an understanding of the different approaches to modelling the consequences of transport engineering, planning and policy decisions.
