Modeling and Simulation of Transportation Networks Course, July 31 – August 4, 2017

March 10, 2017

Modeling and simulation methods are essential elements in the design and operation of transportation systems. We are witnessing a proliferation of interest in Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) and Smart Mobility in all levels of government and industry. Transportation researchers have developed models and simulators for use in the planning, design, and operations of such systems. This course draws heavily on the results of recent research and is sponsored by the Intelligent Transportation Systems Laboratory of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

The course is intended for individuals seeking the in-depth knowledge of the theory, research, and practice of these methods that is necessary for reliable and credible applications.  It combines mathematical presentation with intuitive interpretation, and theory with real-world case studies.

One full-tuition scholarship will be awarded to an outstanding doctoral student. The deadline to apply for the full scholarship is June 19th. Partial (50%) tuition scholarships are also available for junior faculty, postdocs, and doctoral students.
