Abstract

This paper describes seven reference models that can be used to structure relevant topics in the process of designing and developing a program for an Executive Masters of Transport & Infrastructure. It shows the necessity to study the field of transport systems from an inter-disciplinary viewpoint. It seems evident that structuring relevant topics and emphasizing the relationships between these topics, will make it easier to develop a knowledge structure to mimic important transport systems issues. Before one can develop a curriculum, for a program that addresses transport systems in their full complexity, one should first build a framework to (re)-structure transport and infrastructure related knowledge. Several reference models can be used as a backbone to build such a framework. Reference models discussed
