Academics

The Civil and Environmental Engineering Department (CEE) at the UMass Amherst College of Engineering awards M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Transportation Engineering.

For regular admission to a Master's Degree program in Transportation Engineering, the student should have earned a bachelor's degree in an engineering field from an accredited program. Prospective students may be admitted to the program on a Provisional basis without an engineering baccalaureate; however, they may need to make up coursework at the basic level of undergraduate engineering to be eligible for the M.S. in Transportation Engineering. No graduate credit is granted for this basic level work and Provisional status will be held during this period. These students should consult their advisor to determine which basic level courses are required.

The UMass Transportation Center regularly offers seminars and events each semester through its Transportation Seminar Series. Other events offered through the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering can be found on the Civil and Environmental Engineering calendar.

Students can also join chapters of the Institute of Transportation Engineers and Women In Transportation.
