CIV5306 - Road safety engineering
6 points, SCA Band 2, 0.125 EFTSL
Postgraduate Faculty of Engineering
Leader(s): G Rose
The unit will explore the fundamentals and role of road safety engineering theory and practice. An appreciation of the design of traffic elements on the road network and a rigorous detective approach to investigating road crash data will be developed. Participants will learn applied skills to find road crash data and analyse it to determine the nature and extent of road crash problems at any given site. An ability to translate road crash data into meaningful information, determine counter measure options from thorough analysis of information and prioritise and evaluate counter measure implementation programs will be cultivated.
