Canterbury University is fortunate to be able to invite many respected overseas academics to visit here, many courtesy of the Erskine Programme. In recent years, the transportation programme has included teaching by:
- Prof Sue McNeil (Univ of Delaware) - Infrastructure asset maintenance and management, Disaster planning
- Assoc. Prof Susan Tighe (Univ of Waterloo, Canada) - Pavement design and road asset maintenance and management
- Professor Essam Radwan (Univ of Centrla Florida, Orlando) - Highway geometric design, driving simulation
- Professor Bhagwant Persaud (Ryerson University, Toronto) - Road safety, Statistical methods, Highway design
- Professor Michael Taylor (Univ of South Australia) - Traffic engineering, Intelligent Transport Systems, Simulation modeling
- Assoc. Prof Shalom Hakkert (Technion Institute, Israel) - Accident analysis, road safety systems, Treatment of hazardous locations
- Professor David Boyce (Univ of Illinois, Chicago) - Urban and regional transportation planning; Dynamic transportation system models for planning intelligent transportation systems
- Professor Martin Snaith (Univ of Birmingham) - Pavement design and road asset maintenance and management
- Professor Nick Garber (Univ of Virginia) - Traffic operations and highway safety, Speed management
- Professor Michael Bell (Imperial College, London) - Transport network reliability, Intelligent Transport Systems
A number of local industry experts also assist with the teaching in the programme. We are grateful for their time and assistance.
