The Major in Transportation Systems Engineering

All students pursuing the B.S. in Transportation Systems Engineering (TSE) are required to earn a minimum of 120 academic credit hours of course work which includes 42 credits in general education, 2 credits in University requirements, an additional 22 credits in mathematics and science, and 54 credits in core transportation requirements, including 9 credits of approved technical electives to strengthen a particular area of concentration (e.g., traffic engineering, intelligent transportation systems, infrastructure asset management, travel demand modeling and network planning, logistics, etc.), and 6 credits in approved general engineering courses (e.g., engineering mechanics, thermodynamics, etc.).

 

Objectives

The program graduate will:

  • Utilize systems engineering approach to articulate, study, and mitigate transportation problems
  • Apply latest technology and sustainability paradigm to efficiently plan, design, implement, analyze, evaluate, and manage components of the transportation systems
  • Utilize effective communication, team leadership, and total quality managements skills to work productively within their professions and communities
  • Pursue professional development and advanced studies to meet the emerging and evolving demands, and increasing responsibilities of a successful career
  • Conduct themselves as responsible engineering professionals and citizens

 

 

Program Outcomes

The program graduates will be able to demonstrate:

  1. An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics

  2. An ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors

  3. An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences

  4. An ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts

  5. An ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives

  6. An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions

  7. An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
