SYNOPSIS

Traditionally, transportation planning, highway design, traffic management and related duties are the responsibilities of transportation engineers who are trained with civil engineering background. Since the introduction of Intelligent Transportation Systems 30 years ago, and more recently smart cities, connected and automated vehicles, highway electrification, etc., transportation engineers must work with electrical & electronics engineers, mechanical engineers,systems engineers, computer scientists, etc. to deliver projects. The ability to work in teams and knowledge about the complementary disciplines are essential to the career development of transportation engineers. However, most of the civil engineering education curriculum have not responded fast enough to the market needs. In this webinar, the speaker will first present the civil/transportation engineering education system in U.S. universities and the professional certification process. He will then relate from his own teaching and research experiences, the challenges faced by practicing civil/transportation engineers, and researchers. During the presentation, he will also introduce the latest opportunities in the civil/transportation industry and emerging research topics in the U.S. He will also share his current education and research initiatives to train students/engineers to have interdisciplinary and global outlook, as part of the strategies to overcome these challenges.
