About this course
Graduates of the MS program in Transportation Planning and Engineering join the ranks of one of the oldest networks of transportation engineering alumni in the United States. Students are trained by an internationally renowned, award-winning faculty with expertise ranging from traditional traffic engineering to the latest state of the art in smart and connected cities. Alumni gain access to one of the biggest transportation job markets in the United States with New York City, having one of the largest populations, with its transit systems, airports, and seaports, requiring an increasing number of transportation engineers to tackle the one-of-a-kind challenges that accompany them.
Current students are immersed in projects and learning opportunities in areas that the faculty members are known for including connected vehicle deployment; congestion management; city logistics; traffic engineering and optimal control; humanitarian logistics and disaster management; multimodal network design; activity-based demand scheduling; smart cities and urban informatics; among others.
Applicants to the MS program are expected to have an undergraduate degree in an engineering or related discipline, with a basic level of knowledge of probability and statistics.
