Admission Requirements for the Transportation Engineering Graduate Certificate Program
The admission requirements for the transportation engineering graduate certificate program are the same as the civil engineering master's degree program.
Admission to the transportation engineering graduate certificate program with full standing requires that the applicant meet the following requirements:
- Bachelor's degree in civil engineering from an ABET-accredited institution.
- An undergraduate GPA of 3.0 or above for the last 60 hours of courses taken.
Graduate Record Examination (GRE) scores are waived for candidates holding a bachelor's degree in civil engineering from an ABET-accredited institution.
Students with degrees from foreign institutions may be required to take the TOEFL exam.
Students who are currently in graduate programs such as urban and regional planning, engineering management or other closely-related fields may be considered if they can demonstrate equivalent evidence of an appropriate background. Such students should contact the certificate program coordinator to discuss their qualifications and educational objectives. Students will work closely with the certificate coordinator to tailor a program of study to meet their needs and interests.
The application and admission process takes two to three months to complete. Distance students should plan to apply within that timeframe or earlier before the semester in which they wish to start their program. Application review will not begin until all transcripts, application fees and other supporting documents are received.
