This is the first version of the 2021-22 General Catalog. The final edition and the historical PDF will be published during the fall semester.

The graduate Certificate in Transportation Studies requires 15 s.h. of graduate credit. Students must earn a cumulative g.p.a. of at least 3.00 in certificate coursework, including no grade below B-minus. They may earn the certificate in conjunction with a M.S. or Ph.D. in civil and environmental engineering or with a M.S. in urban and regional planning.

Individuals working toward degrees in other transportation-related disciplines are encouraged to apply to the Transportation Studies Program. Depending on a student's background, additional coursework in statistics, computer programming, simulation, mathematics, and operations research may be required for the certificate. Credit earned in these courses may not be applicable to a student's degree program.

Students enrolled in the certificate program may wish to participate in faculty-led transportation research which may explore topics such as system planning, traffic operations and engineering, spatial data systems and analysis, simulation applications, and policy issues.

Certificate/M.S. or Ph.D. in Civil and Environmental Engineering

Students working toward a Master of Science or a Doctor of Philosophy in civil and environmental engineering may earn the Certificate in Transportation Studies by completing a total of 15 s.h. from the courses listed below. Not all courses are offered every semester; view MyUI to determine when specific courses are offered.

Fall
