Transportation Engineering

The Transportation Engineering program is a nation-wide resource for the day-to-day planning, design and operation of transportation systems. Through training programs and resource materials, Transportation Engineering courses disseminate information about, and facilitate the application of, recent developments in the field.

NUCPS awards CEUs to participants who successfully complete continuing education transportation engineering courses.

Financial Assistance


Under the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century (TEA21), the U.S. Department of Transportation has identified eight National Priority Program Areas including "Roadway Safety" and "Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety". These National Priority Program Areas are eligible for Federal funding under an expedited procedure as part of the 402 program (23 CFR 1205.4). NUCPS Transportation Engineering courses are intended to provide for "upgrading the skills of practicing traffic engineers, and providing basic instruction in traffic engineering techniques to other professionals and technicians," in the identified National Priority Programs Areas.
