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. The class will begin in United Kingdom and will include visits to Tower Bridge, Crossrail Stations in London, and the Farnborough Air Show. Students will travel to German sites in Munich and Hamburgfor visits to Airbus and BMW assembly lines, Hamburg port facilities, and Munich airport airside operations.  Bike orientation tours and cultural experiences will be highlighted in each city.

Throughout the trip, students will experience public transportation systems and observe how these systems and supply chains have evolved over the last century.  Class activities will demonstrate the integration between Civil, Mechanical, Industrial, Construction, and Aeronautical Engineering in the operation of complex transportation systems.
