Traffic Engineering and Management Workshop

Background

Contemporary traffic engineers face daily challenges managing congestion, encouraging sustainable travel, dealing with parking issues and balancing the growing demands of stakeholders. The 2019 Traffic Engineering and Management Workshop will help you meet these challenges by providing foundational knowledge in traffic engineering and widening your understanding of issues in contemporary traffic management. Attending the workshop will provide invaluable experience, learning from and networking with professional colleagues. The workshop is presented in partnership between the Monash Institute of Transport Studies and the AITPM.

Who should attend?

The workshop is aimed at, but not limited to, traffic engineers and transport professionals from local council, state government or consulting who are 1-5 years into their career. Case studies will address inner urban, suburban and regional Victorian contexts, with a ’solutions-focused’ approach.

Attending the workshop provides up to 16 hours toward Engineers Australia Continuing Professional Development (CPD).
