SYLLABUS - 2013
This course is designed to
familiarize students with
advanced concepts relating to traffic engineering and capacity
highway and intersection capacity, traffic analysis and simulation
design and application of controls, and roundabouts and traffic calming.
teaching goals are to: make sure my students become independent
thinkers and instill in them passion and curiosity about traffic and
the transportation system; to create a learning environment where
students want to be engaged and understand the importance of thinking
big; to help students appreciate the importance of being
interdisciplinary and foster a student-teacher relationship that is
