Pavement Materials — Graduate Certificate

This graduate certificate prepares individuals to advance an engineer’s knowledge and skills in the rapidly changing field of pavement materials. Engineers in the pavement materials area are responsible for roadway design, construction, maintenance, and rehabilitation of pavements. Pavements, a primary component of transportation infrastructure, are engineered with a strong understanding of materials behavior, mechanistic principles, and construction details.

The certificate requires two required and two elective graduate courses (12 credit hours) from the following:
