Research I, Room 405

Instructor: Prof. Sherry

    Office: Rm. 409, Research I

    Office Hours: Tue 4pm 6pm

COURSE OBJECTIVE:

The student will be introduced to a wide range of current issues in air transportation. The

    issues include: industry economics, system capacity, current system modeling capability, human factors considerations, safety analysis, technology innovation and public policy. The student is expected to develop a broad understanding of the contemporary and future issues through simulation and analysis of the NAS and it’s stakeholders. The course will

    be conducted as a seminar course and will emphasize development of student’s critical

    reading skills. The student’s knowledge will be evaluated through class discussions, class

    presentations, homework and exams.
