Program Description

Transportation systems in Europe have evolved from roman roads, horse-drawn inland waterway narrow boat canal barges and early railroads.  Modern systems include high-speed autobahns, major container ports, extensive electrified railways, and specialized aerospace air transport.  

The course provides active learning experiences to introduce students to various types of European transportation infrastructure and systems.  Students will travel to German sites in Berlin, Bremen, Munich, and Hamburg for visits to the Berlin Airshow, Airbus A380 assembly line, Mercedes Benz assembly line, Volkswagen assembly lines, BMW assembly line, Hamburg port facilities, and Munich airport airside operations.  The class will end in Edinburgh where students will travel through the Falkirk Wheel and maneuver 19th-century narrow boat through staircase locks on a canal day trip.  Experience with public transportation systems, bike orientation tours, and cultural experiences will be highlighted in each city.
