    Graduate study in transportation prepares students forprofessional,teaching, and research careers.

    Emphasis is on the acquisition of advanced knowledge concernig planning, design, operations, maintenance, rehabilitation, performance, and evaluation of transportation systems, including their economic and public policy aspects. This multimodal program, encompassing air, land and sea transprotation systems, stresses development of analytic problem-solving, design, and management skills appropriate for public and private sector professional work. Working closely with faculty advisors, graduate students design individualized programs to suit their goals. After running for four years, the transportation division now has 8 Ph.D, 11 first-year and 12 second-year master students in the well-organized program. A Ph.D student normally requires four years to finish 18 hour course credits and a high-quality dissertation before graduation. The annual quota of admission is set as 12 for the master program and less than 3 for the Ph.D program.

    Research is currently being conducted in the following subjects: dynamic urban transportation network models, fuzzy multicriteria decicion making, modeling air transportation operations and management; traffic simulation, parking guidance systems, transportation industries and polices, various computer-assisted applications and intelligent vehicle/highway systems. Some of the results of the research have been issued and published in the literature and attracted considerable attention in the transportation community.

        

    In order to consolidate their pedagogical and research activities, a traffic control laboratory is established in the July of 1993. Many and yet more traffic control devices and instruments are added and installed in the laboratory, It is expected that program will get more announced and produce broader impact on the national-wide transportation community.
