Mobility Planners learning experience

Published at: 21 April 2017

At the Department of Transport and Planning of the University of Westminster, we are conducting an online survey as part of a research project looking into 'Mobility Planners learning experience'. It has two purposes.  The first is to gather valuable insights into how academics and professionals involved in transport planning experienced their Master degree. The second purpose is to understand how these individuals rate different subject areas in terms of their relevance for their professional practice.
The results of the survey will be presented at the next AESOP conference and will inform the AESOP Transportation Planning and policy group.We would greatly appreciate your participation in this survey and please fell free to circulate the survey link among your colleagues.
