CE 392: Introduction to Highway Engineering

  • The purpose of this course is to provide students with a solid introduction to the principles of transportation engineering with a focus on highway engineering and traffic analysis. The material learned will provide the basic skill set that will allow students to solve transportation problems that are likely to appear in professional practice and on the Fundamentals of Engineering exam (FE) and the Principles and Practice of Engineering exam (PE).  The material also serves as foundation for future coursework in transportation should students wish to pursue further coursework in the field. (Prerequisites for this class are ENGR 212 and CE 361).

CE 590: Statistics in Transportation

  • The goal of this course is to introduce transportation students to important statistical techniques that are commonly used in transportation engineering. The objective is not to produce an engineer who can replace the need for a statistician. Clearly, an engineer who desires the depth and breadth of statistical knowledge required to do this would need to complete an advanced degree from a university statistics department. Instead, the goal of this course is to provide (1) a strong statistical background for transportation engineering students that enables them to perform their various job functions better, and (2) the necessary knowledge so that transportation engineers can communicate effectively with statisticians who can help address the complex issues faced by many engineers. 

CE 590: Safety Analysis (graduate elective)

  • The objective of this course is to provide students with a general knowledge on major transportation safety issues and general background in the application of various statistical and econometric safety analysis techniques. In addition, this course will present a number of model-estimation methods that are used in transportation safety data analysis, and other subject areas that deal with safety analysis.

CE 590:  Advanced Transportation Supply Demand Modeling (graduate elective)

  • The objective of this course is to provide students with a general background in the application of various statistical and econometric analysis techniques. The course will present a number of model-estimation methods that are used in transportation data analysis, economic analysis, and other subject areas that deal with data analysis. It is important to note that the methods presented can be used in a wide variety of data-analysis applications and go well beyond the techniques typically covered in statistics courses. The course will emphasize model estimation and application, but underlying theory and limitations will be discussed to ensure that the methods are properly applied and understood.

CE 590: Network Flow Analysis and Optimization (graduate elective)

  • The main goal of the course will be to acquaint students with the basic elements of operations research through transportation networks, optimal paths in transportation networks, vehicle routing and scheduling problems on networks, facility location problems, transportation network design problems, transportation network flows, and to indicate the directions for future research in this area. Although the course utilizes examples from Transportation, the techniques and models are generalizable to other areas of engineering, e.g., water networks, computer networks, energy networks, agricultural, power, telecommunication etc…

 

At UTEP

CE 6316: Intermodal Transportation Systems:

  • The primary focus of this course is on the design and strategic planning of intermodal transportation systems (infrastructure and rolling stock); that is, how strategic planning pertains to freight transportation. Freight logistics, intermodal technology, and intermodal terminal operations. Intermodal freight transportation policy, planning, and operations systems and programs. Applications include inland and bi-national (border region) planning and design.

CE 5363: Advanced Travel Demand Analysis

  • The objective of this course is to provide students with a general background in the application of various statistical and econometric analysis techniques. The course will present a number of model-estimation methods that are used in transportation data analysis, economic analysis, and other subject areas that deal with data analysis. It is important to note that the methods presented can be used in a wide variety of data-analysis applications and go well beyond the techniques typically covered in statistics courses. The course will emphasize model estimation and application, but underlying theory and limitations will be discussed to ensure that the methods are properly applied and understood.

CE 5364: Infrastructure Network Flow Analysis and Optimization

  • The main goal of the course will be to acquaint the students with the basic elements of the transportation networks, optimal paths in transportation networks, vehicle routing and scheduling problems on networks, facility location problems, transportation network design problems, transportation network flows, and traffic assignment models to date, and to indicate the directions for future research in this area.

CE 5332: Methods Engineering Computation

  • Methods of iterations, approximations, and numerical procedures used in solution of complex problems and optimizations such as occur in Engineering Design and Scientific Analysis. We will be learning MATLAB and other computational software.

CE 4340: Transportation Engineering

  • The purpose of this course is to provide students with a solid introduction to the principles of transportation engineering with a focus on highway engineering and traffic analysis. The material learned will provide the basic skill set that will allow students to solve transportation problems that are likely to appear in professional practice and on the Fundamentals of Engineering exam (FE) and the Principles and Practice of Engineering exam (PE). The material also serves as foundation for future coursework in transportation should students wish to pursue further coursework in the field.

CE 3313: Engineering Measurements

  • Theory and practice of surveying measurements with emphasis on precision, errors, and significant figures, the use of the level, transit, and engineer's tape. Prerequisites: BE 1205 with a grade of "C" or better and junior standing in Civil Engineering or department approval.
