M.Sc. Traffic Management
World Health Organisation claims that road accidents in India are accountable for 3,00,000 annual fatalities, which amounts to 820 road deaths every single day. With an already existing number of registered motor vehicles estimated at 250 million, an annual increase of 10% per annum is catalysing congestion, pollution, indiscipline, and road rage. Scientific approach to traffic management and road safety management is the need of the hour. There is a dearth of professionals in all domains of traffic management: traffic engineering, road safety audit, driver training and fleet management, traffic enforcement and road crash investigation, vehicle fitness and post-crash management.
Based upon the 30 years of rich experience in research conducted at the Institute of Road Traffic Education (IRTE), the IRTE's College of Traffic Management in the NCR Delhi which has been recognised as he Centre of Excellence in Road Safety for South East Asia has introduced the first in Asia 'M.Sc. in Traffic Management'.
