The concurrent degree program with the Program in Transportation Engineering (in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE)) enables students interested in transportation planning to acquire the tools for rigorously approaching transportation-engineering problems. CEE's approach to transportation is technical and analytical, while DCRP focuses on policy issues, particularly as related to the influence of transportation on the political, environmental, and social fabric of communities. In this way, the concurrent degree program enables those interested in the field to bridge the “process” and “policy” components of transportation studies in a complementary and reinforcing manner.
The concurrent degree program allows the qualified student to obtain both the Master of City Planning (M.C.P.) and Master of Science (M.S.) degrees in about 2-1/2 years. Students must be admitted to each department individually. Because this is a concurrent degree program, exceptionally well-qualified persons may apply to both programs simultaneously. Most students, however, apply to one program during their first year in the other program. Contact Professor Daniel Chatman (firstname.lastname@example.org) for information and guidance, if you have an interest in this program.
