Course Structure

TRE field gives students an opportunity to explore the technological, safety, political/economic, and energy/environment dimensions of Transportation Engineering. In enhancing a holistic approach, they undertake courses such as Urban/Regional Transportation Analysis and Planning Methods, Airport Planning & Design, Design and Performance of Highway and Airport Pavement, Transportation Policy and Environmental Limits, and Planning for Traffic Safety and Injury Prevention. Coursework in other fields broadens students' knowledge. Highly recommended are engineering mathematics, fundamentals of soil engineering, geographic information systems in civil engineering, and construction planning and scheduling.

In offering opportunity and choice, students can design their own study programs according to their inclinations and future career objectives. In addition to the courses specified below, students, under the guidance of their academic advisors, can select courses from a wide range of electives from other fields/schools as part of an approved study plan.
