Advanced Transportation Engineering (Certificate NDP) 
Program Description

The Advanced Transportation Engineering (ATE) certificate will provide our students with the opportunity to develop an enhanced understanding of the transportation engineering field. The goal is to prepare them to practice in this more specialized field.

This program prepares individuals to apply mathematical and scientific principles to the design, development and operational evaluation of total systems for the physical movement of people, materials and information, including general network design and planning, facilities planning, site evaluation, transportation management systems, needs projections and analysis, and analysis of costs.

The certificate requires that students take four-3 unit courses (12 units) from an approved list of courses in the area of Transportation engineering in the CEEM department. Students must earn a GPA of 3.0 in these courses.
