CEE graduate students:
Transportation faculty, Professor Jeff Ban is forwarding the revised course description (below) for his class CET 585. He says, this graduate level class will also be appropriate for some undergraduate seniors.
Autumn 2018: CET 585
CET 585 Analytic Methods in Transportation II will be offered in Autumn 2018 by Prof. Jeff Ban (T/Th: 8:30 am – 9:50 am, SLN 12085). The course has been completed redesigned, although it has not been updated on the online description. Graduate students and interested seniors are encouraged to register.
The course will focus on optimization methods and applications in civil engineering systems especially in transportation systems. The course will consist of three major parts: (i) theory/method: basic concepts and algorithms of network flow and linear/nonlinear optimization; (ii) tools: Matlab/Python toolboxes to solve optimization problems; (iii) applications in civil engineering systems especially data analytics methods that deal with emerging data in transportation and other civil engineering disciplines. The redesigned course can better equip students with needed optimization skills that are in great demand (especially when dealing with “big data”) in transportation and other civil engineering disciplines.
If you have difficulty registering, please submit online CEE add code request form.
