Section Description

The objective of this course is to introduce civil engineering students to the wide range of important activities that transportation engineers engage in. Since not every topic can be covered in depth, topics that currently present engineers and society with the largest challenges will receive the greatest focus. After completing this course you should: 1. Understand the various ways that engineers or those with an engineering education can contribute to the planning, design and operation of transportation systems. 2. Be familiar with contemporary challenges facing the sustainability of transportation systems (including environmental, social and financial sustainability). 3. Have a basic understanding of the methods, tools and analytical techniques necessary for planning, designing and operating contemporary transportation systems.
