Coordinated Degree Program in Civil Engineering and Urban Planning
Transportation Engineering and Urban Planning are closely related fields. Transportation engineering deals with the planning, design, construction, and operation of transportation systems, while urban planning is concerned with broader issues that are related to transportation. These issues include land use, environment, economic development, community housing and development, urban design, and other social, economic and political issues at the local, regional, state and national level. Given the increased complexity and interconnection of the issues engineers and planners address, there is a great need for engineers to understand planning issues and planners to grasp engineering principles and skills. People trained in both fields are in high demand.
