Study Abroad: Sustainable Transportation in the Netherlands

Monday, July 2, 2018, 8:00am PDT to Friday, July 13, 2018, 5:00pm PDT

Brought to you by our Initiative for Bicycle and Pedestrian Innovation program, this four-credit, two-week course presents an introduction to transportation engineering applications in the European context. It will build on earlier courses with a special emphasis on differences between U.S. and Dutch standards, and will feature material that provides a contrast between engineering and planning principles and policies.

Furthermore, specific emphases on engineering and planning principles and practice will be explored through field trips and in guest lectures both while abroad and in Portland. Students completing this course will have a greater understanding of the contrast in policies between communities in U.S. and the Netherlands. No previous language study required.

Come rent your fiets and experience some of the best biking infrastructure in the world!
