Additional courses may be offered pending instructor interests/availability.

Courses from related CUNY program areas may also be approved on a case-by-case basis by the CE Transportation Master’s Program Advisor and the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs.



* All Graduate students in transportation are expected to have knowledge in computer programming, probability and statistics, and calculus. Those who have not had at least one course in each of these topics but who otherwise meet the requirement for admission will be required to take an equivalent course for no graduate credit.

** Before taking CE I9700, I9800, or I9900, a student must complete nine graduate credits.  To register for these courses, the student should select a faculty mentor. After meeting with the student, the mentor will provide a form to the student that should be submitted to the Registrar to create the independent study course.

*** 50000 Level courses are available to Graduate and Undergraduate Students. Graduate Students can receive graduate credit for at most two 500 level courses.  To receive graduate credit in a 50000 level course, the student must receive a grade of B or better.
