Description

Join us on Thursday 31 August 2017 for the second Roderick Distinguished Lecture for 2017 featuring the Sydney Metro Program Director for Transport for NSW, Mr Rodd Staples. presenting an insight into the Sydney Metro project, his path to such a role and the opportunities available for civil and other engineering graduates to help deliver the transport infrastructure required of a modern city.
Sydney Metro is Australia’s biggest public transport project, with 31stations and 66km of new metro rail.
This project comes at a time of the launching of the Transportation Engineering major within the Faculty of Engineering & IT, which provides students with the opportunity to embrace the mathematical and engineering methods required to plan, design, operate and manage the infrastructure necessary to achieve safe, economical and environmentally sustainable movement of people and goods.
Professor David Levinson who has recently joined the School to lead the implementation of this new major, sees it as an exciting time to be in a city where there is currently a generation's worth of major transport infrastructure projects occurring simultaneously
