Description/Abstract

In September 2005 the School of Civil Engineering and the Environment at the University of Southampton launched its joint MSc programme in Transportation Planning and Engineering (TPE) with the Beijing Jiaotong University (BJTU), China. Through a collaborative agreement, the existing TPE MSc Programme taught in Southampton was offered to students at BJTU as a mirror of the UK programme in terms of module content, material delivery and methods of assessment. Students taking the course at BJTU enrolled as University of Southampton students and had the same rights as their UK counterparts.

This paper will highlight some personal reflections of the authors on the educational, managerial and quality assurance lessons learned from the first 12-months of the programme.
