of Transportation and Highways Engineering
and Highways Engineering
The educational and research activities
of the Transportation program at the Department of Civil Engineering is
exceptionally wide and comprehensive. It covers the following four major
fields of transportation studies:
The educational program at the undergraduate
level offers a wide variety of courses in all fields of Transportation
towards a B.Sc. degree in Civil Engineering. The Graduate programs offers
several advanced degree in Transportation studies. A M.Sc. degree in Transportation
Engineering which is open to Civil Engineering and other Engineering graduates,
M.Sc. in Transportation Sciences which is open to all with a Bachelor degree
and Doctor of Science (D.Sc.) in Transportation. The Transportation faculty
is involved in many research activities, to mention few:
Geometric Design of Transportation Facilities.
Pavement Design and Properties of Paving
Traffic Engineering and road safety.
The research is sponsored by grants from the
Ministry of Transportation, Ministry of Housing and Public Works, US Government
research grants as well as some research grants from private sources. Members
of the Transportation faculty serves on various stirring committees, as
scientific consultants to the most significant and prestigious Transportation
projects in Israel. They are heavily involved in the decision making process
at all levels of Governments - City, Regional and State.
Advanced Transportation modeling methods.
Traffic control systems, IVHS methods
and Road safety research.
Design models and construction methods
of highway and runways pavement structures. Utilization of recycled solid
waste in pavement construction.
Geometric design methods and capacity
characteristics of various highway facilities.
