Brought to you by our Initiative for Bicycle and Pedestrian Innovation program, this four-credit, two-week course presents an introduction to sustainable transportation and land use applications in the Dutch context. An immersive experience to explore the Dutch approach to cycling, transit, innovative mobility and land use– the curriculum will feature material that provides a comparison between U.S. and the Netherlands problems, priorities, and solutions.
Specific emphases on planning and engineering principles, policy, and practice will be explored through field trips, tours and guest lectures, while visiting Amsterdam, Utrecht and Houten. Students completing this course will develop a broader understanding of sustainable transportation issues and expand their toolkit for context-sensitive solutions. No previous language study required.
