TRAIL Engineering Systems – 14, 15 & 21 May 2012
In this course participants get an overview of the ES framework and the various steps in the ES process, in the context of transport, infrastructure, and logistics decision making. Several real world cases discussed. In addition, there will be an assignment that specifies the research plan for a specific case in relation to the student’s PhD research topic, based on the lectures and readings.
TRAIL Domain Knowledge – 24 & 31 May 2012
This course will be based on an English introductory book which is currently written. PhD students will get a general introduction into a) the transport system (which factors drive this system), b) the impact of the transport system on accessibility, safety and the environment, and into c) transport policy making and evaluation methods.
Profile of Future Employers of PhD Students - 5 June 2012
In this course PhD students will meet representatives (TRAIL Alumni) of a university, a research institute, the Dutch government, a consultant and a service provider. They each will give a lecture and there is ample time to ask questions. A great opportunity to learn more about the possibilities of a post-graduate career!
Behavioral Aspects in Transport – 14 June 2012
In this course participants will learn about the adaptation of human behavior to recent developments in telematics, in particular to automated systems that support the driver in the traffic task. It will also discuss why people choose for certain ways of transportation (how, when, why), and how people evaluate policies aimed at reducing transport policies. Participants will be assigned to a real life problem (“pay as you drive”), and work in small groups on solutions for problems in the development of this controversial measure.
