ITS Course: MSc Transport Planning and Engineering, 1990

I am currently working in the SE Asia region of ADB assisting governments develop transport policies and plans as well as supporting infrastructure development and operational improvements through technical assistance and loan financing.

My experience at ITS helped to provide a solid base in many aspects of transport, which have been useful in the different situations and circumstances I have uncounted during my career.

I chose my course at ITS because I was studying Geography ‘next door’ and my professor suggested it as I liked the mathematical and GIS aspects of my undergraduate studies

The advice I would give to potential new students considering a course at ITS is simply do it, you will not regret the year, it will be hard but definitely rewarding.
