ACEC-MN: Discover Engineering Meeting
October 22 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Transportation Planning and Design
Students will learn how transportation planning, design, visualization, and computer modeling work together to bring a project from concept to reality. Students will have the opportunity to explore key transportation planning and design concepts with hands-on activities that involve street configuration, alignment, and impact analyses tasks, plus demonstrations on design modeling software. Topics covered include understanding the context of a project, identifying the needs of a project, considering design concepts and constraints, in addition to understanding the concerns and communicating with the public.
