Prerequisite
knowledge of road transportation
Rationale
Knowledge and understanding of the basic concept of Traffic Engineering is highly essential for the engineers designing and executing the road laying projects in order to make road transport system safe and workable. Students are expected to perform various traffic surveys, analyze data and interpret the results and design of traffic control device appropriately in order to apply their knowledge in designing efficient and safe road transport systems.
Course Outcome
After learning the course the students should be able to:
i.) Conduct different types of Traffic Surveys
ii.) Explain the reasons of accidents and their preventive measures
iii) Design of traffic signals at intersections and rotary intersection.
iv) Aware of various traffic regulation and control devices.

Active Learning
Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should submit to GTU.
