EVENTS: Academic Training
Postgraduate Transportation programmes (Masters, Diploma, etc) have been set up jointly by Auckland and Canterbury Universities. There are a range of coursework and research project options, and existing full-time practitioners (incl. outside Akld/Chch) can study part-time while still working, including one-off courses for CPD.
Lincoln University have a Programme in Transport Studies , with courses at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. It focuses particularly on transport logistics, multi-modal transport, and environmental impacts.
For more information, contact Dr Jean-Paul Thull .
The NZ Institute of Highway Technology (NZIHT) run a Diploma in Highway Engineering Course . This is a multi-purpose qualification to meet the needs of all sectors of the roading industry including local authorities, contractors, consultants, and industry suppliers. It is based around two-week block courses with follow-up self-study. 12 such modules are required, usually spread over two years.
For more information, contact Jill Warner , NZIHT.

Road Safety Engineering Courses are run approximately once a year by a number of consultants and NZTA staff. These 5-day courses introduce people to crash reduction studies and safety audits, including hands-on practice.
For more information, contact Stuart Fraser , New Zealand Transport Agency, Wellington.
Fundamentals of Traffic Engineering Courses are held usually once every year alternating between the Universities of Auckland and Canterbury. This five-day course covers the basic theory underlying good traffic engineering practice, and is particularly useful for non-transport practitioners (e.g. planners) finding themselves more involved in transportation issues in their work.
