Transportation Technology and Policy Graduate Program

The Graduate Group in Transportation Technology & Policy (TTP) provides a modern interdisciplinary education for addressing pressing transportation, environmental, economic, and social problems facing the nation and the world. Students may pursue either a technology track or a planning and policy track. The technology track is for students trained in engineering and the physical sciences and interested in systems-level planning, analysis, management, and design of advanced transportation technologies (especially vehicle propulsion and “intelligent transportation systems”). The planning/policy track is aimed at students from a broader range of disciplines, who are interested in the analysis of public policy and planning issues related to transportation (especially the social and environmental impacts).
