The course is offered in the 3rd semester of the bachelor building programme. It will give understanding and knowledge about road planning and training in computer assisted road design.

Learning outcome

  • Knowledge of the Norwegian Road Administration's handbooks in road planning / road design
  • Knowledge of principles for geometric design and technical execution of roads and GS roads
  • Knowledge of using data tools for use in road planning
  • Knowledge of materials for road use as well as various laboratory tests
  • Knowledge of planning processes, technical plans and regulation plans

  • Be able to plan traffic systems and design roads and streets of different types
  • Be able to use computer programs to plan and project
  • Knowing legislation, road standards and technical and aesthetic forming parameters

General competence
  • Be able to plan and present a project assignment in collaboration with other students, both in writing and graphically
  • Contribute electronic presentation of road projects


The course provides basic knowledge in order to plan and design streets and roads.
The course provides training in the use of computer tools in road design, preparation and presentation
of road plans. Training in the use of Novapoint, laboratory exercises with report, and project assignment in engineering with Novapoint.
