Transportation Engineering Graduate Certificate

The online transportation engineering graduate certificate program provides transportation professionals the opportunity to expand their knowledge and skills through graduate study that is less extensive than a traditional master's program. Students can pursue a focused collection of courses to receive recognition for continued efforts in the area of transportation engineering. Transportation engineering graduate certificate courses may apply toward an engineering master's degree.

All courses needed for the program are offered online to students residing both in and out of the United States. Students never need to come to campus for any course work. A research paper or final presentation is required in order to complete the graduate certificate program.

Careers in Transportation Engineering

The provision of a safe, efficient and environmentally sound transportation system is critical to the physical, environmental and economic health of the nation. A pool of highly qualified transportation professionals is required to:

  • plan and design our nation's transportation systems
  • operate and maintain transportation infrastructure, facilities and services

K-State compiles post-graduation employment information. That information and other career assistance information can be found on the K-State Career Center website.


Kansas State University is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.

The transportation engineering graduate certificate is offered through the Department of Civil Engineering in the Carl R. Ice College of Engineering. The department's undergraduate programs are accredited by the Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology (ABET) and the same engineering faculty are fully engaged in the high-quality graduate programs.

This program is an initiative of the Kansas State University Transportation Center and the Mid-America Transportation Center.
