Target Audience:This course is available to full-time and part-time students enrolled in Canterbury’s postgraduate transport programme (i.e. MET, MEngSt or PGCertEng; see the website www.met.canterbury.ac.nz for more information). Most students new to these programmes will be expected to take this course early on as part of their qualification, particularly those planning to undertake a research project as part of their degree.Other undergraduate or postgraduate students at Canterbury (e.g. in engineering, maths, geography, economics, etc.) may also apply to enrol and will be considered on a case-by-case basis.The course will also benefit industry professionals and practitioners with little practical experience in the New Zealand transport industry (e.g. recent graduates or migrants). The course can be undertaken for a one-off Certificate of Proficiency (COP) or as part of a larger qualification.No pre-requisite knowledge in the course topics is necessary, although some previous background in transport planning and/or modelling would be useful."
