Transportation Degree Programs from Consortium Member Universities


New York University

Located in a city with one of the world’s most complex transit systems, the NYU campus is a gateway to an ideal laboratory for those wishing to study transportation. The primary departments involved in transportation education are the Department of Civil and Urban Engineering (CUE) in the Tandon School of Engineering, the Wagner School of Public Service, and CUSP. CUE offers a Ph.D. program in Transportation Planning and Engineering, an M.S. program in Transportation Planning and Engineering, an M.S. program in Transportation Management, and a B.S. degree in Civil Engineering. Wagner offers a Master of Urban Planning with a track in “Environment, Infrastructure and Transportation.” CUSP offers an M.S. in “Applied Urban Science and Informatics” with a domain specialization in Transportation and Mobility. The program has grown to an enrollment of 84 students in three years.


Rutgers University

Rutgers has 17 transportation-related faculty members. In the last five years, 43 undergraduate and 60 graduate level transportation-related courses have been taught by Rutgers’ faculty. Departments actively involved in transportation run several transportation-related centers: the RIME laboratory, the Center for Advanced Infrastructure and Transportation, the Voorhees Transportation Center, the Local Technical Assistance Program, and the National Transit Institute. The Department of Civil Engineering offers an M.S. degree with transportation, and the Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy offers an M.S. of City and Regional Planning degree with an option of a joint Graduate Transportation Certificate with the CEE Department that includes seven core transportation courses.
