Transportation Systems Engineering

Planning, design and management of multimodal transportation systems is an area in which engineers can contribute to addressing a wide variety of challenges, ranging from congestion to security to environmental impact. A transportation system includes vehicles, network infrastructure and information technology, used both for monitoring and control and to provide information to users of the system. The interactions of people with the system are especially complex and important. Our current faculty are pursuing research including automated traveler information systems, freight transportation and security concerns, transportation of hazardous materials, and air quality issues in urban transportation. Study in transportation systems engineering often includes work in related areas such as economics, operations research, systems engineering, city and regional planning, and management
