Dual degree with City Planning
- Satisfy requirements of “City Planning”
- Satisfy requirements of “Transportation Engineering” as for MS Plan II
- 5 semesters
- A bachelor's or master's degree from an accredited institution or a recognized equivalent is required. If you hold only a bachelor's degree, you must earn the master's degree while progressing towards the Ph.D. A demonstrated superior level of academic achievement (minimum 3.5 GPA) in your graduate studies and support of a faculty research adviser are required to continue in the program.
- Minimum GPA of 3.5 in the major and above 3.0 in the minor fields.
- Each PhD student must have a graduate advisor to provide general academic guidance and to help with administrative matters, and a research advisor to supervise the student's dissertation research and to assist in identifying funding paths.
- Broad variety of courses in Transportation Engineering, e.g. policy, operations, systems, and design + basic core.
- Proficiency in probability/statistics, e.g. Stat 134 and Stat 135 or CE 262
- Two minors
- Three examinations:
- Preliminary examination
- Written qualifying examination
- Oral qualifying examination
- Workshops with thesis committee
