Transportation Management & Policy

TMP logo

The Transportation Management and Policy Program (TMP) satisfies the demand for transportation professionals who understand multiple dimensions of mobility management and planning, enabling them to make choices leading to more environmentally and socially sustainable transportation systems now and in the future.

TMP’s curriculum integrates the study of the environment, transportation and land use planning, engineering, economics, freight mobility, multi-modal systems, spatial analysis, and decision making with the study of political, legal, environmental, and social factors that shape transportation management.

The program prepares students for professional work with public sector transportation agencies, consulting firms, and other organizations concerned with sustainable transportation management and policy. CFIRE provides support and coordination for the TMP program and CFIRE Director Teresa Adams serves as program chair.

Master’s-degree students who complete the program receive TMP certificates in addition to their degrees. Doctoral students can count the program as a minor. TMP is not available as a stand-alone graduate degree.
