Transportation Infrastructure

Civil engineers and other technical professionals help design and build infrastructure systems and facilities for government agencies and private sector firms. Since infrastructure usually involves a significant initial investment and is expected to have an extended useful life, it is essential that the design accounts for construction, operation and maintenance. Learn how to overcome environmental challenges in regards to solid waste and disposal, or understand the basics of soil engineering. If you’re a public works manager or engineer, learn how you can make the most of your dollars to build and maintain your community’s infrastructure systems. Keep your roads, streets, highways safe by learning how to predict pavement performance, and ensure your railroads are compliant with FRA 237. If water is your specialty, learn how to keep your supply safe through wastewater and treatment, or get certified in cross-connection and backflow prevention.
