Transportation Engineering

Students interested in the Transportation Engineering areas can pursue either:

  • Master of Science in Civil Engineering
    Normally for students with an undergraduate degree in Civil Engineering.
  • Ph.D. in Engineering
    Normally for students with a master of science degrees in Civil Engineering.

A graduate program leading to the degree of Master of Science in Civil Engineering with a focus in Transportation is offered by the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. This departmental evening graduate program provides practicing professionals an opportunity to pursue advanced study on either a part-time or full-time basis. Maintaining a balance between theory and application, stressing modern engineering methods for the solution of detailed and complex problems, and emphasizing the concepts of analysis and design coupled with engineering judgment are all integral to the nature of this program.

The program offers study and research in the field of transportation and in the related areas of planning, management, traffic and environmental studies, highway design and construction, and other civil engineering disciplines. A student in this program who has BSCE degree or its equivalent would typically pursue a MSCE degree. A student with a MSCE can pursue a Doctorate in Engineering with the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department."
