Discover the Rewards of an Urban Transportation Studies Degree
The Centre for Urban Transportation Studies (CUTS ESUT) is a collaborative initiative
between the Enugu State University of Science and Technology (ESUT) and CHRIS CUTS
CONSULTS Limited, and the first of its kind in Nigeria. Indeed a center such as this should
have been part of the nations educational priorities since the drift to the nations big urban
centers began in earnest in the late 1970s and 80s and gradually grew to become a worrisome
phenomenon for development planners.
CUTS ESUT programmes will offer post graduate degrees and diploma courses, and several
other unique professional courses on Urban Transportation. CUTS ESUT will also offer
mutually beneficial partnerships with governments, public and private institutions, (national
and international) as well as consultancy and advisory services in simultaneously running and
comprehensive programmes to meet the country’s identified needs as fully as possible in the
near, medium, and long-term future. Furthermore, CUTS@ESUT offers continuing education
and professional development activities to keep urban transportation professionals on the
cutting edge of the industry.
With an eye on the identifiable mistakes of the past and the urgent needs of the present and
the future, CUTS@ESUT aims at educating and producing future transport planners,
designers and administrators who will have a particular appreciation of the relationship
between the planning functions and the engineering characteristics of alternative systems. For
this purpose, emphasis is placed on the following objectives:
The development of capacity for public transport planning, operation and regulation.
The development of an integrated spatial planning and urban transport policies
The inculcation of the basis for the determination of infrastructure and public
transport service development needs and priorities.
The application of the modern transport methods in urban development with the view
to solving the problems of traffic congestion in cities in Nigeria. Based on the above,
