Intelligent Transportation

项目介绍

Since early 1990’s, Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) have been evolving in developed countries to cope with transportation problems such as traffic congestion and road safety issues caused by a growing population and continuous urban development. ITS combines leading-edge information and communication technologies used in transportation and traffic management systems to improve the safety, efficiency, and sustainability of transportation networks, reduce traffic congestion and enhance drivers’ and passengers’ experiences.

The Master of Philosophy (MPhil) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) Programs in Intelligent Transportation aim to provide a well-rounded education as well as rigorous research training to prepare students to become versatile and knowledgeable professionals in intelligent transportation engineering and technologies. Areas of research may include computational modeling, floating car / floating cellular data, inductive loop / video vehicle / Bluetooth detection, information fusion from multiple traffic sensing modalities, collision avoidance systems, safety and security of unmanned aerial vehicle, green aviation technologies, public transportation systems such as railway systems, connected vehicles (CV), autonomous vehicles (AV), and shared mobility.

PhD graduates should be capable of conducting high-quality original research, creating new knowledge, deriving valuable insights, and making tangible impacts to academia and the field.

On successful completion of the PhD program, graduates will be able to:

  1. Demonstrate mastery of knowledge in traffic management systems and transportation engineering and technologies;
  2. Identify scientific and engineering significances in intelligent transportation technologies including computational and analytic models, tools, solutions, and techniques;
  3. Demonstrate critical thinking and analytical skills that are essential for traffic management;
  4. Conduct high-quality original research independently in areas of transportation engineering and technology and provide substantial scientific contribution to the discipline;
  5. Translate and transform fundamental research insights effectively in academic fields and industry; and
  6. Apply cross-disciplinary knowledge and skills to enhance the transportation systems and develop new technologies.

To qualify for admission, applicants must meet all of the following requirements. Admission is selective and meeting these minimum requirements does not guarantee admission.1. General Admission Requirements of the University
