Short Description

 The aim of the course is to provide the basis on demand analysis for products and services in the areas of shipping, transportation, and telecommunications. Students are asked to conduct a market research and analyze the results based on the theory developed during the lectures. The main topics covered in the course include: (a) sampling methodology, (b) data collection and questionnaire analysis, (c) GPS data analysis, (d) development of discrete choice models, (e) assessment of statistical assumptions, (f) forecasting methodology, and ( g) presenting the methodology and results of the a market research.

At the end of the course learners should be able to understand the behavior and needs of users, to design a market research, to process statistical data, to develop models simulating user behavior and to apply these standards for future predictions.

 

The Transportation Systems Analysis course aims at:

• Understanding the terminology (in Greek and English), the basic concepts and characteristics of transport systems.

• To provide the basis for the study and critical analysis of the issues related to passenger and freight transport.

• To provide skills for developing econometric models that can be applied to the transport sector, and to teach students innovative date collection methodologies.

• To understand the 4-step model for the simulation of the transportation systems.

• To contribute to the analytic and synthetic ability of students.
