The curriculum consists of five courses that are designed to provide a common platform of relevant engineering principles & practices, coupled with managerial concepts & practices. Upon entering the program, the candidates will complete these five core courses as a cohort, followed by five courses in one of the following two tracks: (1) Transportation or (2) Logistics.
The degree culminates in one of three options: All course option, Master’s Thesis, or Master's Project. Students have the choice which path they wish to take to complete their degree requirements. The intended culminating experience will change the nature of the student's course plan, as each option changes the minimum number of electives a student needs to take to complete their degree requirements.
