Course Summary: The purpose of this course is to provide students with a solid introduction to the principles of transportation engineering with a focus on highway
engineering and traffic analysis. The material learned will provide the basic skill set that will allow students to solve transportation problems that are likely to appear
in professional practice and on the Fundamentals of Engineering exam (FE) and the Principles and Practice of Engineering exam (PE). The material also serves as foundation
for future coursework in transportation should students wish to pursue further coursework in the field.
