Pre-requisite Courses and Assumed Knowledge and Capabilities

CIVE1180 Transport Engineering 1


Course Description

Transport Engineering 2 introduces you to the complex interaction that occurs between the transport system and other elements of urban development. It also introduces the benefits to be gained by the efficient management of transport resources. You will be exposed to various aspects of the transport system such as planning, design, operations and management. The importance of sustainability in the lifecycle of transport infrastructure will be emphasised.


Objectives/Learning Outcomes/Capability Development

This course contributes to the following Program Learning Outcomes for BH077 Bachelor of Engineering (Civil and Infrastructure) (Honours):

1.1 Comprehensive, theory-based understanding of the underpinning natural and physical sciences and the engineering fundamentals applicable to the engineering discipline.

1.3 In-depth understanding of specialist bodies of knowledge within the engineering discipline.

2.1 Application of established engineering methods to complex engineering problem solving.

3.6 Effective team membership and team leadership.


On completion of this course you should be able to:

  • CLO1: Survey and collate traffic data.
  • CLO2: Analyse traffic movements through a designated area/intersection.
  • CLO3: Identify and design traffic system components.
  • CLO4: Evaluate and design local area traffic management systems.
  • CLO5: Develop and justify traffic congestion management strategies.


Overview of Learning Activities

Theoretical content related to various elements of transport systems will be proposed and discussed in lecture sessions. Content knowledge will then be applied to practical scenarios during tutorials. Theory will frame application as you solve transport engineering problems working in small groups/teams. You will work sequentially through various elements of transport engineering design and management issues to develop solutions.

This course includes a Work Integrated Learning experience in which your knowledge and skills will be applied and assessed in a real or simulated workplace context and where feedback from industry and/or community is integral to your experience’ through simulations and role plays using industry technology, equipment and processes.


Overview of Learning Resources

A range of resources will be available through the Canvas LMS.
