Logistics is the art and science of managing and controlling the flow of goods, energy, services, information, and people. The field of transport can loosely be divided into three categories: infrastructure, vehicles and operations. Transportation is a vital activity in moving both freight and passengers around the world.
The College of Engineering has both the depth and breadth of knowledge and experience in Logistics and Transportation. Two transportations and logistics centers operate in the college and the faculty are currently conducting research in scheduling, capacity planning, intelligent transportation systems, goods movement, ports operations and security, traffic engineering, military logistics, and transportation planning.
