Department of Transportation Studies

 

The Department of Transportation Studies has a mission to provide comprehensive transportation education that builds on the latest data, systems and technologies. Currently the Department offers Master of Science Degree in Transportation Planning and Management, and is affiliated with Doctor of Philosophy in Urban Planning and Environmental Policy with a specialization in transportation. The Department will begin to offer a new Bachelor of Science Degree in Maritime Transportation Management and Security in Fall 2010, and anew Master of Science Degree in Maritime Transportation Management & Security in Fall 2011.

Graduate study in Transportation Planning and Management is designed to train students for successful careers in the various field of transportation. Programmatic emphasis is on preparing the students to enter the public and private sectors with considerable training and advanced knowledge concerning planning and policy, logistics and management, systems and technology, and homeland security. Students can structure their degree programs based on their career goals. For those focusing on planning or operations careers, the TSU transportation program has a strong foundation in traffic operations, transportation planning, public transportation and Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). For those pursuing management careers, TSU transportation programs have strong foundations in transportation principles, economics and finance, logistics, homeland security, and transportation policy and management.

The department is affiliated with a number of significant research centers and special programs including Center for Transportation Training and Research (CTTR), National Transportation Security Center of Excellence for Petrochemical (NTSCE-P), Innovative Transportation Research Institute (ITRI), and Houston National Summer Transportation Program (HNSTI). The CTTR, NTSCE-P and ITRI provide programs or training with specialized internships and research exposure through on-going applied and empirical research and demonstration activities. Sponsors of the research programs include U.S. Department of Transportation (U.S. DOT), Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), Southwest Region University Transportation Center (SWUTC), Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), and various other public and private organizations.
