Target group

This course is focused on Bachelor’s in their second to last or last year, Master’s and Phd students and researchers in, but is also open for anyone with broad interests and an inquisitive mind.

This course is in English and partly in Russian (translation provided). Therefore, is a great opportunity to practice your English language skills! Nevertheless we expect you to have a good command of the English language. These language requirements are your own responsibility and will enable you to follow the course lectures, write papers and participate actively in the discussions. Therefore applicants do not need to prove the suggested language skills in the registration process.

Course aim

The course aims to introduce students and researchers to the wide range of technical subjects and information when studying transport and infrastructure engineering at university, as well as the challenges facing the modern engineer. By the end of the course, students will:

• Have a understanding of the fundamentals of infrastracture engineering of Bridges and Railway Construction;
• Understand how these knowledge are used to comprehend the world of construction infrastructure objects;
• Have a basic understanding of BIM methodology of modern applications in infrastructure projects;

Transport engineers plan, design and operate the large public and private infrastructure systems that connect our physical world.

We need a broad range of continually evolving, large-scale transport infrastructure, including roads, railway, bridges and tunnels. Transport engineers quantify and optimise our mobility infrastructure networks to meet travel and freight demands, while ensuring safety, equity and sustainability, at minimal levels of congestion and cost.

Transport engineering has always been one of the essential civil engineering disciplines, impacting roadways, bridges, transit stations, and other.
