4 November to 15 November 2019
The course on Transport Modelling is developed to familiarize students with a number of modelling and forecasting techniques that are key to research in transport economics.
In this course, the perspectives of the software engineer and the transport economist will be matched. Transport economists understand the problem they want to study and have an idea about what they need from models, but they are not always up-to-date with the possibilities in other fields such as engineering and vice versa.
Guest lectures of high-level scientists specializing in one or more of the above-mentioned topics are included in this course.
