NDSU is set to offer two new graduate courses in transportation this spring. They are Advanced Public Transportation and Academic Conduct, Leadership and Ethics in Transportation.
Public Transportation II is a three-credit course focusing on concepts and modeling procedures used when planning and operating public transportation systems. Topics will include transit demand analysis, quality of service concepts and estimation, bus and rail capacity, and service planning. Public Transportation I is a prerequisite for the course, but allowances can be made for students with a background in public transportation who have not taken TL 786. Course Instructors will be faculty members Jill Hough and Ranjit Godavarthy.
Academic Conduct, Leadership and Ethics in Transportation is a three-credit course focusing on theories, concepts and practices in students' academic programs that also may be applied to their careers. Students will learn laws of leadership as well as principles for being a person of influence. They will be introduced to theories of ethics and business ethics focusing on transportation, and learn how to identify ethical dilemmas and tools to assist in making decisions. Hough is the course instructor.
For more information on the courses, contact Jody Bohn Baldock, academic program coordinator for the Upper Great Plains Transportation Institute, at 701-231-7938 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
