Interdisciplinary Grad Programs:

Graduate Programs

The MSTE degree, a joint program of the Civil and Industrial Engineering departments, was accredited in 1997 by the Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology (ABET). It has been offered successfully for the past three academic years. The MSTE program provides a unique opportunity for students from non-engineering disciplines to pursue engineering studies and to be on track for licensing as professional engineers. The U of A is the first university in the United States with an accredited MSTE degree. of Transportation Logistics and Management

The MTLM degree, housed in the Department of Marketing and Transportation in the Walton College of Business Administration, was first offered in fall 1998. The 30-hour program requires courses in business and engineering and is open to both engineers and non-engineers. Two new courses, Supply Chain Management and Transportation/Logistics Modeling, were developed specifically for the program. Because MTLM students may enroll on a part-time basis and take evening courses to fulfill some requirements, the program expands opportunities for practicing transportation professionals to pursue graduate studies.

Transportation Specialization

The PhD in Public Policy is an interdisciplinary program housed within Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences. The program emphasizes public affairs, leadership and administration, and the analysis of complex policy problems. The transportation option prepares the doctoral graduate to make sound policy decisions by providing background and understanding of transportation issues. The course of study includes infrastructure planning, development and management, public transportation, logistics, and commercial vehicle operations. Transportation faculty are drawn from the departments of Civil Engineering, Industrial Engineering, and Marketing and Transportation.
