Additional Opportunities in Transportation and Infrastructure:
Urban mobility is being disrupted by technology in ways that have not occurred in a century. New travel modes, and new transportation companies, are arising almost overnight. Transportation is essential to urban life. Against that backdrop, many of the fundamentals of urban mobility remain the same. Transportation shapes, and is shaped by, neighborhoods. Transportation occurs at the intersection of planning, Big Data, and politics, and the resulting policies affect patterns of equity and access throughout the city. Students in this concentration will learn skills in data analysis and technology, market structure, policy and public finance related to transportation. This concentration focuses on multi-modal transportation, including emerging topics such the role of alternatives to the car, trends in freight transportation, and best practices in public response to new technologies.
