# Graduate Certificate in Transportation Engineering

The graduate certificate in the field of transportation engineering is particularly appropriate for those who wish to gain specialized knowledge in either intelligent transportation systems and congestion mitigation or transportation safety.

Students who successfully complete the graduate certificate in structural engineering may opt to continue towards a master's degree in the Civil and Environmental Engineering department. All courses completed by the student in the graduate certificate program with a grade of B or better can be transferred to the master's degree program.

Specific admission requirements are shown on the Graduate Program Finder.

The following requirements must be fulfilled: 15 credits, including 9 credits in required courses and 6 credits in elective courses in one selected track.
