Transportation Research Design: How Are Ideas Born?

Prerequisites: 
Permission of the Instructor
Enrollment: 
Limited to 18

This seminar dissects ten projects from head to toe to illustrate how research ideas are initiated, framed, analyzed, evidenced, written, presented, criticized, revised, extended, and hopefully published, quoted and applied! In parallel the course engages students in designing and executing their own transportation research. This class meets at the same time as the weekly seminar of JTL - the MIT Urban Mobility Lab (jtl.mit.edu)
