Senior level decision makers in the field of transport planning for the central or provincial government are highly recommended to take this course. Experts from international NGOs, consulting firms and financial institutes are gladly welcomed to attend as well.

LUTP curriculum aims to analyze fundamental components of integrated transport planning and review successful cases. It will be a hands-on learning experience with group exercises and site visits highlighting fundamental components of the urban transport system. Additionally, we will provide participants with Seoul’s unique experience on integration of inland transport planning and IT-based transport system.
