Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The aim of the course are basic professional knowledge and competence in the field of integrated transport systems, including building components and equipment. Completing the course the student gains skills: - Define public transport systems, describe their main task, to derive and explain the differences between individual systems and derive a system of integration. - Explain the principles of the use of integrated transport systems. - Apply theoretical knowledge to a specific design of any system of public transport. - Analyze strengths and weaknesses of all types of public transport and categorize them in terms of suitability. - Propose the establishment or building any public transport system. to defend, explain and evaluate the proposed system of public transport and be able to compare with others according to defined criteria.

Summary

The aim of the course is the basic professional knowledge and competence in the field of integrated transport systems, including their building components and equipment. Students get an overview of the development of individual types of public transport. Become familiar with the appropriate requirements for the design of the transport system according to the required parameters. A substantial part of the design of transport facilities for transportation, passengers, routes and connections of individual types of public transport. Urban development, automotive, changes in living standards of the population, but also new demands on the quality of the environment require new knowledge and models of dealing with one of the most important functions of the city - traffic. Knowledge will be complemented by system design specifics of public transport and coexistence with other transport modes.
