I am a current masters in urban planning student, and I'm planning on a concentration in transportation planning.
My program allows planners to take classes in the engineering school which offers classes geared toward statistical modeling rather than transportation policy. My question is, what type of technical classes would be the most useful to take? Are there particular modeling programs that are more useful to know than others? Because I'm not a transportation engineer would you recommend just getting a feel for statistical traffic modeling or would you say the more classes the better? I'm in New York City so I am looking to focus on urban transportation issues.
