Transport Engineering

Transportation engineering is a subset of CIVIL ENGINEERING that includes the planning, design and operation of transportation and traffic systems. These programs are available at the graduate certificate, doctoral and masters levels.

Transport engineering modules relate to transport systems design and traffic engineering. Transport planning modules consider policy (such as reducing car dependency), travel demand forecasting and assessment. If you have a civil engineering background you can choose to take an optional module in transport infrastructure design as an alternative to the extended modelling and assessment work.

Professional Career

Transportation engineers have several duties based on specific job levels. Engineers must be able to assess plans and proposals enrolled by other engineers and make changes if necessary. Other common duties comprise analysis of schematics and engineering data, providing recommendations for traffic and driving policies, designing and examining the effects of urban areas and transit. Also, transportation engineers may supervise plans with contractors and calculate the overall costs for a project.
