ITS Edulab is the Dutch Traffic and Transport Laboratory for Students. It is a cooperation between Rijkswaterstaat - Centre for Transport and Navigation and the Transport & Planning group of the Delft University of Technology. The goal of ITS Edulab is educating students, the future traffic engineers, as well as stimulating scientific developments for the benefit of policy making and the operational practice of Rijkswaterstaat.
ITS Edulab university students solve traffic related issues with short-term research for Rijkswaterstaat, as part of their scientific education. This way, the institute connects real-life topics with scientific research.
ITS Edulab offers clear benefits for Rijkswaterstaat, the university and the students. In ITS Edulab research can be done for which the Centre for Transport and Navigation of Rijkswaterstaat does not have manpower or budget. Because of this cooperation, Rijkswaterstaat stays in touch with current scientific developments. For the Delft University of Technology ITS Edulab connects theory and practice and offers interesting master projects to students. The students have a chance to develop useful knowledge in practical scientific projects, solving real-life traffic related issues.
