Courses in transportation engineering are offered at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels:
Many of our undergraduate courses have material either entirely or partially related to transportation engineering. The list below covers those courses.
Final-year BE undergraduate students with good grades may also be able to apply to enrol in a postgraduate transport course.
This page describes in more detail the postgraduate courses available, not only within the department but outside options as well.
Additionally it explains the degree options and course teaching modes.
The following undergraduate courses involve aspects of transportation engineering:

Fundamentals of Transport Engineering
|This course is intended as a bridging course for non civil-engineering students entering the postgraduate programme. Canterbury Civil Eng students should take ENCN412 instead.|
3rd Pro students may also be able to take other relevant outside electives.
Interested students should discuss their options with transport staff.
