Transportation Engineering

The suggested courses provide a balanced offering of transportation engineering courses and can provide a basis for entering into professional practice or continuing on to graduate school. The courses listed below were selected with the recognition that knowledge of both transportation and construction topics are required to plan, design, and construct transportation facilities; therefore, we are emphasizing that a blended program be considered.

This is a general guide. Please consult your faculty mentor for more information.
