Transportation Engineering

To solve the transportation problems of complex modern societies, Transportation Engineering analysis needs to be integrated with other disciplines. To meet this need, the graduate program in Transportation Engineering is organized to enable students to supplement basic Civil Engineering studies with courses and research in other departments of the University. In this way, sound training at an advanced level in design, construction and operations is combined with a wide range of elective courses related to the planning, evaluation and management of transportation facilities.

The graduate program in Transportation Engineering provides advanced training and research facilities for both graduate students in mid-career and for those who wish to concentrate primarily on research. Graduate students whose undergraduate degrees are outside of Civil Engineering, or whose degrees are in other Engineering disciplines, may qualify for admittance depending upon background.
