The Post-Graduation Program in Transportation Engineering is one of the oldest in the field of transportation engineering in the country. It began with the master's degree in 1973, along with the Department of Transportation and Topography of the School of Engineering of São Carlos, University of São Paulo, which is currently known as Department of Transportation Engineering.. In 1976, after its natural development,, the PhD course was implemented. To date, Masters have been trained , 135 to perform their activities in the best universities 350 of the country and in Latin America , as well as in public and private companies in transportation sectors..
The School of Engineering of São Carlos, , is located in the city of São Carlos, located in the vicinity of the geographic center of the State of São Paulo which hosts the Post-Graduate Program of Transportation Engineering , in its Department of Transportation Engineering. , São Carlos is known as the "Technology Capital".. It holds an USP campus, , divided into three geographic areas, where undergraduate and postgraduate courses in engineering, , physics,, chemistry, computing, mathematics, statistics as well as architecture and urbanism are offered. . São Carlos is considered as the Latin American city with the highest rate of doctors per capita,, due to the diversity of postgraduate courses offered by the two public universities located here. . This high-quality and diversified university structure,, facilitated with easy road, rail and air access, , good , infrastructure of public and private services and excellent quality of life, , turn the São Carlos city in to a dynamic research and development center. , Hence, it attracts undergraduate, postgraduate , and research students from the state of São Paulo, all over the country, also from Latin American , countries and even from around the world.
Due to these factors,, along with ease of access, , good infrastructure and quality of life, , São Carlos has become a research and development hub, attracting undergraduate, , postgraduate and research students , and research students from the state of São Paulo, all over the country, also from Latin American , from other states of the Union, , as well as Latin American countries..
The postgraduate program in Transportation Engineering has state of the art , facilities with approximately 1,600 m2 1.600 of built area. 2 The buildings contain two theatre halls for the defense of dissertations and theses,, lectures and graduate classes,, classrooms and rooms for professors , and postgraduate students. , The laboratories of rheology, of materials and mixtures of asphalt, , geomatics,, geoprocessing applied to transportation, , simulation of direction, , computer simulation of transportation systems and computerized teaching are also located in the covered area..
The Master and Doctorate courses are intended for professionals with a background in civil engineering and related fields. They focus on two major areas of research: : (i) Transportation Infrastructure and (ii) Transportation Systems Planning and Operation.
