The purpose of the course is to gain insights into traffic, logistics and telecommunication systems by the means of project work. The project cover problem definition, choice of methodology and analysis. The aim is that the student, after finalizing the course, be able to:

  • Formulate a problem specification based on a problem description
  • Find and digest literature relevant for the project
  • Analyse problems in the area of telecommunication and transportation from a quantitative perspective
  • Use problem specific methods for the analysis of a defined problem
  • Plan a project, write documentations and perform project evaluations
  • Perform and evaluate a traffic, logistics of telecommunication project
  • Present results in writing and in an oral presentation

Course content

Project: formulation of project plan, specification and literature studies
Other course specific content is depending on the different project descriptions, which are provided at the start of the course

Teaching and working methods
