Degree Programs at NYU UTEP UW CCNY Rutgers

The Tandon School of Engineering, NYU’s college of engineering and applied sciences, is the second oldest private engineering and technology school in the United States. Transportation students at NYU live and work in the epicenter of one of the largest and most complex urban transportation networks in the world, using New York City as a living laboratory to learn about and study today’s most pressing transportation issues. Esteemed faculty offer a wealth of expertise, training students in everything from the fundamentals of traffic engineering to the latest in smart cities technology.

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 the Center for Urban Science and Progress (CUSP).

At the University of Washington’s department Civil & Environmental Engineering (UW CEE) students and faculty are taking on the challenges presented by aging national infrastructure, while developing new approaches to address the needs of urban systems and communities around the globe. UW CEE is dedicated to providing students with leading-edge technical skill development and opportunities for hands-on practice to enable them to tackle complex engineering problems in response to changing technological and societal needs.

UW CEE is unique in the number of study abroad opportunities led by department faculty. Many students study abroad in other countries, enabling them to gain an international and historical engineering perspective.


At Rutgers Engineering, students have the opportunity to be part of a dynamic engineering community that includes world-renowned faculty conducting leading-edge research as well as engaged and motivated students from a diversity of backgrounds and interests, who remain networked beyond their studies as part of a 25,000-strong alumni association.

Rutgers engineering scholars and professionals are out front communicating ideas and envisioning projects and solutions that make the world a better place to live. 

An engineering degree from Rutgers is a springboard to an innovative and impactful career. Graduates leave with a solid technical and scientific foundation that empowers them to build a future that’s sustainable, ethical, and secure for all.

The Grove School of Engineering at The City College of New York is the only public institution offering bachelors, masters and PhD degrees in civil engineering in New York City. The Department of Civil Engineering is committed to the rigorous training of students from diverse socioeconomic backgrounds to become future leaders in NYC’s agencies, firms and professional organizations. This is consistent with the college’s mission of “access and excellence”, and also addresses the fundamental needs of the city. The Civil Engineering department of was recognized in February 2020 by the ASCE Metropolitan Section with a Centennial Award for our significant engineering contributions to New York City over the last 100 years.

CCNY employs 18 full-time faculty members who specialize in professional fields closely related to transportation and believes that there is no field in which an inclusive workforce is more critical than in civil engineering – a profession that relies on both the professional training and personal life experience of its practitioners and on communications with a broad community of users to plan, design, build, operate, and maintain infrastructure systems that ensure quality of life for all populations.
