Urban Transport Weeks

Three great weeks of lectures on urban transport themes will take place at the Technical University of Hamburg-Harburg, Germany (TUHH) on weekdays between 14th September and 2nd October 2015.

14 09 15 TUHH

The aim of the Urban Transport Weeks is to inspire both students and young professionals from various disciplines to consider transport as a career. Lectures will be delivered by transport experts and have been organised by TUHH departments in association with other bodies such as StadtRAD Hamburg and Umwelt Bundesamt.

Transport is recognised as one of the most pressing current challenges and will continue to be into the future. Talented individuals from different study backgrounds, not necessarily from technical fields, are encouraged to get involved. There is a choice of three different modules for each week that focus on topics like sustainable transport solutions, the latest trends in science and practice and international job perspectives. These are:

• Module I (Week 1): Metropolitan Accessibility
• Module II (Week 2): Walking & Cycling
• Module III (Week 3): Urban Logistics

Hamburg was the second city to win the European Green Capital Award in 2011. It has an excellent public transport system, an impressive cycle network and numerous green spaces which incorporate planned routes so that citizens have easy access throughout.

Fees are charged per week and vary according to students and non-students. For more information, please check out the webpage and for registration details, please click here.
