Using PTV software has been a great way to get familiar with the principles of transport modelling during my studies as the software packages are very user-friendly and can be applied for a wide range of research projects. As part of my MSc programme at Newcastle University, we visited PTV's headquarter in Karlsruhe where their staff delivered excellent training courses, which encouraged me to pursue a career in transport planning and traffic modelling.
