Austroads has commissioned eight online learning units from ARRB and the University of Sydney that cover the fundamentals of traffic management. (I created Units 5 and 7). The units cover 22 modules, each includes a video with in-session exercises. Some modules include additional tutorials. Paul Bannett of ARRB will be presenting the dissemination webinar on the 21st January. If you wish to tune in, you can register here: https://austroads.com.au/webinars-and-events

Our masterclasses program is your opportunity to taste test our curriculum.
Delivered from a class that may form your future course, so you can explore which postgraduate option is right for you. Understanding How Technology Shapes Cities
This class will look at the history and future of transport, and how it has and may change where and how we live. By exploring the evolution of systems such as the London Underground, Sydney’s Trams, and US Highways, we can learn about the processes that effect the landscape as electric, autonomous, and shared vehicles become widespread.
Presented by Prof David Levinson..
This class is delivered as part of CIVL 5703, a unit of study offered through the Master of Transport.
Our Civil Engineering program moved to 24th according to these rankings. The University did well overall. While I don’t much trust rankings, I’ll brag anyway. I am proud to be a part of this. If you too want to be a part of this, get a degree at the University of Sydney. Our new Master of Transport Program is available now …
Develop your critical understanding about the engineering, urban planning, and business management of transport. Understand the prevalence and identification of transport systems and core capabilities for analysing and designing them.
Our Master of Transport is Australia’s first interdisciplinary degree, focusing on the engineering, urban planning, and business management of transport.
This professional full-time degree is ideal for graduates wanting to pursue a career in the global transport sector or professionals already in the field wanting to upskill.
It is designed to further your ability for strategic and logical reasoning, deduction, network and temporal data analysis, and expand your proficiencies in broad interdisciplinary analysis.
Our Master of Transport is truly multidisciplinary, allowing professionals the opportunity to undertake a unique combination of units spanning engineering, architecture and business throughout their studies.
I posted skeptically late last year On Academic Rankings. Some new rankings have come out, so it is time to brag or fret some more. The world renowned ARWU has come out with new rankings for Civil Engineering, and better still, for Transport.
I am pleased to report Sydney comes in 7th globally in Transport. None of this is my doing, I just got here, but nevertheless it is good to hear.
Sydney comes in at 32 globally in Civil Engineering (a bigger arena than transport usually). Again I am not responsible, and this is not how I would rank them, and it sure is puzzling how this is how it came out, and sadly we are behind local rival UNSW, but that is being worked on …
