Description

This popular course was specifically developed for new and mid-career engineering and planning professionals. It can also be useful to introduce traffic engineers to other subjects within the profession. Congestion, safety, and engineering analysis are covered, including information on signal timing, crash analysis, data requirements, and traffic studies using the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) and Highway Capacity Manual (HCM). During the course, an experienced practitioner will present examples for traffic engineering concepts, and attendees will learn about the extensive resources available for transportation engineers and planners. Interactive sessions and a comprehensive workbook provide an opportunity to learn through real-world examples throughout this course.
