The group offers various courses about transport planning, transport modeling, road safety, and research design. The courses are taught in english.
The following classes are offered during the winter semester:
- Spatial Modelling: Tools to evaluate planning strategies. This class covers transportation models (trip-based, activity-based and freight models), land use models and models to estimate environmental impacts.
- Transport Sociology and Psychology: This course includes theories and and tools to understand and forecast travel behaviour.
- Object-Oriented Programming for Transport Engineers: This courses serve as an introduction to object-oriented programming in JAVA, with specific applications for transport engineering.
- Project Seminar: This course is mandatory for students of the Master in Transportation Systems and consists in a project related with transportation developed in small teams and regularly supervised by various instructors of the TUM Department.
In summer semester the following courses are offered:
- Research Design: How to tackle a Master's Thesis. The course is designed for students who work on their master thesis. Doctoral candidates are welcome to attend this class as well.
- Road Safety Fundamentals: The main goal of the course is to learn about road safety theory and applications.
- Applied Transport Modeling with MATSim: In this course the students apply the agent-based model MATSim to practical examples.
- Transport Planning in Developing countries: This course describes data needs, models, scenarios and measures for transport planning in developing countries.
This research group also advises on Master Theses. Topic areas that can be advised by this research group are listed here.
