They plan, design and maintain all types of transportation facilities, including? Highways and streets? Mass transit systems? Railroads? Airfields? Ports and harbors …

Degree of Master of Engineering A minimum of 30 credit hours of approved courses is required for the Master of Engineering degree (M. E. ). The university places limitations on these credit hours in addition to the requirements of the transportation engineering program that are listed below. A complete discussion of all university requirements is found in the current Texas A&M University Graduate Catalog (available on the Internet at http://www.tamu.edu/admissions/catalogs/) under the heading “The Degree of Master of Engineering.” A. Advising Committee The Master of Engineering program in transportation does not require an advising committee. A chair will be determined and the chair is responsible for advising the M.E. student. B. Courses Core (required) courses include: CVEN 617: Traffic Engineering – Characteristics (uninterrupted flow) CVEN 618: Traffic Engineering – Operations (interrupted flow) CVEN 672: Engineering and Planning Urban Transportation Systems CVEN 681: Transportation Seminar I Optional CVEN courses include: CVEN 625: Traffic Engineering – Design (traffic signal operations/design) CVEN 626: Roadside Safety Design (Highway Safety) CVEN 632: Transportation System Engineering Management (Economics) (pre-requisite 672) CVEN 635: Street and Highway Design CVEN 677: Advanced Surface Transportation Systems CVEN 689: Advanced Civil Engineering Systems CVEN 689 (stacked with 456): Highway Design CVEN 696 (stacked with 457): Urban Traffic Facilities… Transportation Engineering Graduate Handbook 2009-2010 14 CVEN 632: Transportation System Engineering Management (Economics) (pre-requisite 672) CVEN 635: Street and Highway Design CVEN 677: Advanced Surface Transportation Systems CVEN 689: Advanced Civil Engineering Systems CVEN 689 (stacked with 456): Highway Design CVEN 696 (stacked with 457): Urban Traffic Facilities Students have the flexibility to choose from many other courses within the College of Engineering and outside the college. Examples of commonly taken courses: STAT 601: Statistical Analysis STAT 658: Transportation Statistics PLAN 670: Urban Public Transportation Planning MNGT 655: Survey of Management INEN 625: Simulation Methods and Applications The courses taken by the student will be developed by the student and their advisory committee. The courses will include core courses and other courses that are appropriate for that student’s specific interest/area of study within transportation engineering. Note: One of the following 400 level undergraduate courses, such as CVEN 454: Urban Planning for Engineers, may be allowed to count towards your degree. C. Thesis Proposal As soon as the research project can be outlined in reasonable detail, but no later than the end of the 3rd semester of study, the thesis research proposal should be completed. The Research Proposal shall describe the proposed research, including relevant background information, and clearly demonstrate how this research will make a unique contribution of new knowledge to the student’s area of study. Upon approval of the Research Proposal by the advisory committee chair, the Research Proposal must be submitted to other members
