Transportation Engineering Graduate Program

Overview

The graduate educational program in Transportation Engineering at the University of Florida focuses on a wide spectrum of topics including highway capacity, facilities design, traffic operations, systems analysis, network modeling, travel behavior, demand forecasting, and planning. Additionally, with the wide diversity of programs available within the University, opportunities exist to pursue other areas of minor emphasis. 

 

The emphasis areas of the transportation research program include:

  • Advanced electronic and computational technologies for traffic operations, detection, control, safety, and simulation

  • Operational and planning level traffic analysis methodologies

  • Enhanced systems-analysis and network-modeling methods

  • New travel forecasting and policy analysis approaches

The program is affiliated with the Transportation Research Center (TRC). This center was established by the Florida Board of Regents in October 1972 to provide a central point through which transportation research may be developed, performed and reported. Located in the College of Engineering, the TRC works with a number of other academic units throughout the college and the university. 

The Transportation Engineering Program and the Transportation Research Center are home to the Southeastern Transportation Research, Innovation, Development and Education Center (STRIDE).  STRIDE is a U.S. DOT Regional University Transportation Center (UTC).  STRIDE represents the member institutions of Region IV of the USDOT's University Transportation Centers UTC) program.
