Purpose and Contents of the Course
This course focuses on learning some of methodologies to analyze transportations and regions, which are sometimes vulnerable to natural hazards. In addition to it, getting used to the essence of the basic way of theoretical and mathematical thinking in planning is another main target. For fulfilling these purposes, we choose three topics: 1) Transportation modelling and statistics,, 2) Logistics management and analysis, 3) Urban studies and planning for Nepal.
