The broad impact of transportation systems requires an interdisciplinary approach to the planning, design, construction and operation of these systems, especially for a country like Indonesia whose regions are geographically spread out, heavily constrained by harsh natural elements like seas, rivers, forests and mountains, and heterogeneously divided by socio-cultural differences and diversities.
Transportation Program at the School of Architecture, Planning and Policy Development ITB encompasses a wide range of academic disciplines. It draws together a compulsory of essential knowledge from transportation system analysis, transportation planning and policy, transportation operating and control systems, infrastructure management and logistic system, supported by more generic sciences such as modeling system, engineering system, traffic engineering, and economics. Any technical solutions to transportation problems are to be promoted in integration with socio-cultural, economic, political and environmental concerns.
Transportation Program is designed as such to satisfy the demand for transportation professionals who comprehend multiple dimensions of transportation planning and management, enabling them to make decisions leading to more economically, socially, and environmentally sustainable transportation systems nationwide at present and in the future.
