This class covers transportation systems such as aviation, expressway, highway, public transport, and bicycle. The environmental improvements related to those systems are focused and advanced topics are discussed in the class.
Natural and living Environments affected and created by Transportation systems are major focus of this class. We may cover a part of safety environments such as disaster prevention and traffic accident as well as atmospheric environment and GHG emission. The aim of this class is to give students hints and ideas of researches on transportation engineering. In order to know the planning system which is another key to realize better environments, students are strongly recommended to take the class titled theory of regional planning process at spring semester.
