Transportation Engineering

Master-level studies involve specialized study in a field of research or an area of professional practice. Earning a master’s degree demonstrates a higher level of mastery of the subject. Earning a master’s degree can take anywhere from a year to three or four years. Before you can graduate, you usually must write and defend a thesis, a long paper that is the culmination of your specialized research.

Students pursuing an education in transportation engineering may expect to learn a great deal about planning, designing and building important transportation assets like roads, ports and railways. These skills may come in handy for those seeking professions as a highway engineer, railroad engineer or port engineer.

The USA remains the world’s most popular destination for international students. Universities in the US dominate the world rankings and the country also offers a wide variety of exciting study locations. State university systems are partially subsidized by state governments, and may have many campuses spread around the state, with hundreds of thousands of students.

Masters in Transportation Engineering in Prince George's in USA. Additive Manufacturing is a new class of manufacturing processes with associated design principles that are being used extensively by engineers for prototyping concepts and to realize new products. It is the official industry standard term (ASTM F2792) for all applications of the technology. It is defined as the process of joining materials to make objects from 3D model data, usually layer upon layer, as opposed to subtractive manufacturing methodologies. The curriculum has more manufacturing, materials, and design content than a standard degree in Mechanical Engineering, which is the most closely related degree program. A number of new specialized courses are being developed to support the degree. Examples of topics covered include: * Fundamentals of Additive Manufacturing Processes * Product Realization using Additive Manufacturing * Design and Optimization for Additive Manufacturing * Polymer processing for Additive Manufacturing Learning outcomes include: * understanding of material properties that govern use in AM processes * understanding of manufacturing principles for AM * understanding of design principles for AM * ability to employ AM for prototyping and product realization * ability to model AM processes * ability to perform statistical analysis of AM processes Office of Advanced Engineering Education 2105 J.M.
