Course Objective: This subject deals with the Planned Development of Highways in India and makes the student aware of the importance of Highways in economic development of a Nation. The subject also deals with various geometric elements of Highways and their Design. Fundamentals of Traffic Engineering also will be taught to the student. The students will be given exposure to Pavement Structure Design by various methods.
