About the Course

During the four coming weeks, best experts in bitumen will bring you their knowledge and experience to build a strong understanding of today’s realities and new perspectives on the future of bitumen. Total is the European leader on bitumen markets. Innovation has always been the key to sustainability and durability in the products they develop. Their main objective here is to share technical knowledge and experience to insure bitumen are being used in the most effective and efficient ways for their different applications in road works. Ecole des Ponts, France oldest engineering school, remains very much in the present, as it has always been, in training engineers in order to meet the needs of our society and citizens in key areas such as transport housing and urban services, but also in fields like energy, environment, climate sciences, land-use planning and sustainable development. Nineteen world recognized experts on bitumen are contributing to this MOOC. The idea is to provide the broadest prism on this topic area with speakers coming from research, industry and end users....

I am very happy that I've successfully completed Mastering bitumen for better roads and innovative applications! And I would like to apply for Master's program in Civil Engineering offered by École des Ponts. I am a proud Civil Engineer. I am a very dedicated, disciplined, and intellectual person.

I had been recommended for École des Ponts and found it to be one of the best universities in France. So there was no doubt that this is where I would like to get my masters, not only was it the best university in France, but it had a program that had everything I was looking for.

Life in Lebanon has become very challenging in the past few years. Not only the Lebanese people are suffering from political instability, corruption, environmental pollution, absence of any basic life services (water, electricity, transport, clean food..), banks have also not been allowing people to access their money, the local currency has been falling tragically, we have an unprecedented increase in the prices of goods and services, but also; recently Beirut has suffered from one of the world’s biggest explosions, causing over 500 casualties and injuring over 5000 persons.

As young engineering with a lot of potential and energy to study, work, and build a future. For the next some years, Lebanon is no more a suitable place to live, grow, or nurture my potential in.

My desire to enrich my knowledge in civil engineering, my personal and professional experiences.

It was an excellent course for all the learners and professionals. I personally could learn many new things that are being practiced in Europe, France and USA by transportation engineering professionals. I thank all the speakers for delivering their knowledge and experiences. I also would like to thank Coursera for initiating such unique course. I would like to learn more through similar such videos related to transportation/pavement engineering.

The most comprehensive summary of Bitumen. As I am Doctoral student, I have seen first time such a comprehensive information all about bitumen in single course. I am expecting the course like this one related to comprehensive Aspahlt Mix Design (including all types with respect to history) and Pavement Structure Design (unbound materials, bonded materials , cement treated base etc).

All Modules were Awesome. Thanks Again all Instructors.

Course improved my knowledge on bitumen history, characteristics and applications but their should be complete delivering of knowledge on modern techniques about Marshal stability and super pave. Its a good course covering information about bitumen market, its specifications, properties, safety and much more. I would recommend this course to students and people working in road sectors.

Es un curso muy bueno, que abarca todas las aristas del mundo del asfalto y a veces uno se especializa tanta en un área que se olvida el rol de los demás participantes. Me sirvió para repasar conceptos que si bien ya los conocía o los había escuchado, estos fueros reforzadas con la experiencias de los profesores. 100% recomendado

excelente curso muy completo, aunque espere algo sobre el uso del ensayo Marshall y aspectos del diseño de carreteras por el método Shell, pero realmente es muy enriquecedor todo el conocimiento adquirido y el gran desempeño empleado por los creadores del MOCC.
