About this Program
Smart, effective transportation systems are vital for society. Creating systems that move people and goods efficiently can help economies thrive, protect the environment, and improve 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 critical issues related to 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 also study the environmental impacts of different transportation options and investigate legal and governmental factors involved in sustainable transportation policy.
Professionals who work on transportation and sustainability issues, along with those who want to enter the field.
