PT is pleased to post this notice from Clark Lim, the principal of Acuere Consulting and an instructor in the SFU Next Generation Transportation certificate:
BC Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists (APEGBC) asked me to hold a seminar on transportation planning. I’ve framed the topic across the transport vertical from governance and policy, to road user psychology, data/analytics and eventually technology.
Although it is held by the engineer association, I suggested it be open to anyone, including elected officials as technology will increasing become an impact to planning and governing. In fact, I’m hoping software engineers come out as I believe they will increasingly be more significant than planners.
Engineers, planners, and decision makers need to understand the complex, dynamic, and industry/domain-spanning issues that will challenge urban transportation systems over the coming decades. The session will cover fundamentals across the “transportation vertical” from data and analytics to policy and governance, the latest planning methods, techniques and tools, and the increasing impact of advanced technologies to the planning status quo.
