The Master of Science in Civil Engineering (Transportation Engineering Option) offers courses in planning, design and operation of multi-modal transportation facilities. It emphasizes the interdisciplinary nature of the subject, supplementing engineering concepts with techniques from management, economics, operations research and environmental studies. Specialization in a specific area can be achieved through thesis and project work.
Graduate study plans are designed based upon student interest, professional needs and undergraduate preparation. Courses from other appropriate disciplines such as engineering, management, and pure and applied science may be taken to form a coherent program in transportation engineering.
Please refer to the UMass Lowell Graduate Catalog for program information and course descriptions, as well as undergraduate pre-requisites.
