The professional talk “Case Studies Using Software Modelling in Traffic and Transportation Engineering & Challenges Working as a Traffic/Transportation Engineer” was successfully organized by the Civil Engineering and Construction Department, Faculty of Engineering, Science and Technology (FEST). The talk was held on Wednesday, 12th February 2020 at Block 9, Infrastructure University Kuala Lumpur (IUKL). 35 students, mostly the final year Bachelor of Civil Engineering (Hons) students, attended the talk. The invited speaker, Engineer Muhammad Kamal Hassan graduated with a Bachelor of Engineering (Hons) degree from Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM), Shah Alam (2009) and Master of Highway and Transportation Engineering from Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) in 2013.
He has been in the research and education profession for four years in the field of highway and transportation engineering and has four years of experience in traffic engineering and transportation planning. Now he is attached to ATUR TRAFIK Sdn. Bhd a traffic and transportation consultancy as a Senior Transportation Engineer. During the talk, he demonstrated his experience in the usage of software modelling in transportation planning with some of the case studies in Malaysia. He also related his experience working as a Transportation Engineer / Planner or Traffic Engineer. It is hoped that the talk would have given students meaningful information on the Transportation Planning courses. After they graduate as Civil Engineers, they can face challenges in their job, especially if they work in the Transportation and Traffic engineering area.
