Transportation and Planning

Transportation & Planning Engineering applies to the efficient movement of people and goods by planning, designing, building, and maintaining facilities such as highway, rail, airport, and mass transit systems. These systems are the infrastructure backbone of much of the developed world's economy.

Suggested Course Selection for Civil Engineering with a focus in the Transportation and Planning Engineering Subdiscipline:

  • CE302 Dynamics (ESE I)
  • CE333 Transportation Engineering (required)
  • CE401 Hydrology (ESE II)
  • CE436 Transportation Planning & Design (DE)
  • CE437 Construction Methods & Management (TE)
  • GE306 Engineering Geology (BSE)
  • 1 Design Elective
  • 3 open Technical Elective or Independent Research

DE = Design Elective

TE = Technical Elective

ESE = Engineering Science Elective (I, II)

NSE = Natural Science Elective

The technical electives selected from within the Civil and Environmental Department must meet the following distribution requirements:

  • 6 credits of Design Elective from CE403, CE408, CE415, CE423, CE428, CE436
  • 4 credits of Natural Science Elective from GE306 or BI101
