ITS Course: MSc Transport Planning, 2010

Currently, I work as an airport planner at DGCA. Directorate General of Civil Aviation is the regulatory body governing the safety aspects of civil aviation. I check the master plan for airport and make sure that all developments at the airport are according to the airport's master plan. 

My time studying at ITS gave me more of an understanding about global transport issues. It helped to build my confidence and also helped me to make better evaluations and analysis related to my job. 

I was initially introduced to the University of Leeds by my supervisor at the University of Gadjah Mada, Siti Malkhamah. She encouraged me to study transport at Leeds because she also graduated from ITS with her MSc Transport Planning and Engineering and her PhD

My advice to students considering taking a transport course at Leeds is take a lot of information about the course, the lecturer, etc. if you are interested especially in land transport and economic transport Leeds also has reputable lecturers.
