Outline of lecture


This class covers transportation systems such as aviation, expressway, highway, railway, other public transport, and bicycle. The environmental impact and improvement caused by those systems are explained and advanced issues are discussed in the class.

Purpose of lecture

Natural and living Environment affected and created by Transportation systems is a major focus of this class. We may cover a part of safety environment such as disaster prevention and traffic accident as well as atmospheric environment including GHG emission reduction. The aim of this class is to give students hints and ideas of researches on environmental solutions related to transportation engineering. In order to learn planning system which is another key to realize better environment, students are strongly recommended to take the class titled theory of regional planning process at spring semester.
