Traditional Graduate Program (MS and PHD)

Traditional Graduate Program (MS and PHD)

Bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees are offered in Civil Engineering, emphasizing Transportation Engineering. In addition, a Transportation Operations and Planning (TOP) certificate program, a concurrent degree in transportation engineering and urban planning, and a Transportation Professional degree are also offered. The academic program in civil engineering is housed in the Engineering School of Sustainable Infrastructure and Environment at the College of Engineering. The students learn and research various topics, including:

  •     Connected and automated vehicles
  •      Big data and data analytics
  •      The theory of traffic flow
  •      Simulation and optimization of transportation systems
  •      Traveler behavior and safety analysis
  •      Resilient Infrastructure planning, design and monitoring
  •      Dynamic traveler information systems
  •      Multi-modal transportation (e.g., transit, ridesharing, and micro-mobility)

Students may also undertake their research in transportation engineering topics while pursuing their degrees in other programs such as computer science, mechanical engineering, occupational therapy, industrial and systems engineering, and urban and regional planning.

If you are interested in such an option, please refer to the academic programs of the appropriate departments for information on the degrees and requirements.
