Studying Transportation Engineering in Canada

Transportation engineering students typically begin with introductory courses in math, physics, project management, and design. Transportation engineering courses include traffic flow theory, traffic engineering, urban planning, construction engineering, rail engineering, pavement design, and urban transportation planning.

More advanced topics include urban transportation systems analysis, where students use statistical methods to analyze traffic data and use this information to design more effective traffic systems.

A large portion of the transportation engineering curriculum is geared towards laboratory studies and fieldwork. These are designed to allow the student to apply their theoretical classroom knowledge to real-world applications. As well, most courses involve a degree of computer-aided simulations and prototyping; students learn about the various common programs used in present-day transportation engineering.

Students also take non-engineering courses designed to provide a well-rounded education. This includes courses in public policy, ethics, law, and business management. These courses are also valuable for students who wish to pursue a further degree in these subjects.
