We are very pleased to inform interested persons that applications are now open for the ICP Global Scholarship Program 2019.The ICP “Master of Transportation Sciences – Road Safety in Low & Middle-Income Countries” offers a 2-year multidisciplinary master program with a unique focus and approach to Road Safety in Developing Countries. The program is supported by VLIR UOS and has 12 scholarships available each year.
Students are trained to identify transportation and road safety issues in order to create innovative solutions by using an integrative approach based on three pillars: the individual (dealing with the human behavior in traffic and how to influence it e.g. intentional and unintentional hazardous behavior such as drunk driving or cognitive impairments), the environment (e.g. creating self-explaining roads and infrastructure that minimizes crash impact) and the society (e.g. societal norms and translation into policy and enforcement measures). Road safety in this program is approached as a cross-border field, incorporating elements of psychology, economy, urban planning, environmental studies, engineering and more.
