Transportation Engineering: Introduction to Transportation, Planning, and Funding
In the United States, transportation accounts for approximately 17 percent of the gross national product (GNP), and approximately 15 percent of household income is spent on transportation needs; therefore, transportation, which can be defined as the movement of people and goods, is vital to business and life in the U.S.
This interactive online course will discuss the structure, administration, planning, and funding of United States highway system. Topics that will be covered include an overview of the structure of the US highway system, the role of State Departments of Transportation, transportation at the local government level, the functional classification of highways, and the funding mechanisms currently in place for transportation at the federal, state, and local government levels.
While this is not a Florida-specific course, please be advised that the presenter will be utilizing examples from his experience as a licensed engineer in the state of Florida.
