About the course

Develop Sustainable Solutions to Transportation Challenges

Creating smart, effective transportation systems is a vital priority for society. Moving people and goods efficiently is essential to a thriving economy and a significant factor in protecting the environment, and improving the health and the quality of life in communities of all sizes.

In this three-course certificate program, you’ll gain an in-depth understanding of the critical issues surrounding the planning and development of sustainable transportation systems. We’ll review policies and programs that promote alternatives to the single occupancy vehicle, including mixed use development and increased population density. You’ll study the environmental impact of different transportation options and investigate the legal and governmental factors involved in sustainable transportation policy.

What you'll learn

  • How transportation planning for both people and goods affects livability and sustainability
  • The specifics of capacity analysis, supply management and Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS)
  • Important transportation planning tools and how they are used at the site, city, region and state levels
  • Design and planning considerations related to sprawl and compact cities, energy use, transit-oriented communities, and mixed-use and mixed-income development
