The Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) region is one of the largest transportation hubs in the United States. Nonetheless, auto-dependent transportation in both the DFW region and the US is highly inequitable. While affluent populations use automobiles to reach their destinations, low income populations, persons with disabilities, and the elderly are frequently forced to rely upon underfunded transit systems for commuting and access to education, jobs, health and childcare services. This certificate program prepares students to plan, advocate, and engineer for better equity within existing transportation resources and infrastructure.
In partnership with Civil Engineering and the Center for Transportation Equity Decisions and Dollars (CTEDD), the College of Architecture, Planning and Public Affairs offers a certificate program that prepares students to plan, advocate and engineer for sustainable transportation and for better equity within existing transportation resources and infrastructure.
