ENGG 123 Engineering Design and Communications (University of Regina)
Calendar description: Students will be introduced to the concepts of engineering design and communications. In addition, the consequences of engineering projects on society will be explored.
CIVE440/PLAN478 Transit Planning and Operations (University of Waterloo)
Calendar description: The historical evolution of transit in cities; the technological innovations which made transit possible; and transit mode definitions. Models of transit vehicle motion are presented; transit travel times under different travel regimes are derived. Transit scheduling methods are shown. System operational characteristics are defined and quantitative measures of effectiveness are introduced. Transit network planning objectives are identified; actual geometries are qualitatively and quantitatively analyzed. Transit ownership structures and economics are discussed; contemporary ITS applications are presented. Methods for selecting appropriate transit modes are covered.

Graduate Courses

ENEV 841 Urban and Regional Transportation Planning (University of Regina)
Calendar description: Context and definition of transportation planning, transportation in an urban setting, planning and decision making, data management and diagnosis, demand analysis, supply analysis, study of a selected software package for transportation planning, reviewing of regional transportation studies.
ENEV 843 Urban Traffic Management (University of Regina)
Calendar description: Traffic components and characteristics, traffic stream characteristics, traffic flow theory, data collection and traffic monitoring, fundamental concepts for uninterrupted flow facilities, freeway capacity and level of service, traffic control devices, fundamental concepts for interrupted flow facilities, principles of intersection signalization, analysis of signalized intersections, pedestrian and bicycle facilities.
CIVE643 Fundamentals of Traffic Flow Theory (University of Waterloo)
Calendar description: This course examines the formulation, derivation, and application of theories associated with traffic flow on interrupted and uninterrupted road networks. Topics include traffic stream characteristics, human factors, car following models, safety, energy and emissions, and traffic flows at signalised and un-signalised intersections. Theoretical models will be tested using field data and simulation. This course was taught in collaboration with Dr. Bruce Hellinga.
