PSR Region 9
NAU faculty alignment with the Pacific Southwest Region 9 University Transportation Center
The faculty within the Department of Civil Engineering, Construction Management, and Environmental Engineering who are also associated with AZTrans uphold the high standards of the PSR Region 9 University Transportation Center.
The faculty associated with AZTrans and PSR-9 UTC are committed to providing a high-quality education in transportation engineering. This goal is accomplished through teaching a diverse range of both undergraduate and graduate courses, covering a broad spectrum of transportation subjects.
Many classes include lab components which provide students with hands-on experience performing transportation data collection and analysis, as well as experience with software packages used in the transportation industry.
Both undergraduate and graduate courses include semester design projects giving students valuable transportation systems design experience, helping them to become practice-ready transportation engineering professionals upon graduation. Transportation-related courses taught by AZTrans and PSR-9 UTC faculty include: Highway Engineering, Traffic Studies and Signals, GIS Applications For Engineering And Construction, Advanced Traffic Signal Systems, Intelligent Transportation Systems, Advanced Concepts In Traffic Safety, Pavement Design, and Infrastructure Economics.
Transfers is a biannual magazine from PSR 9 featuring abridged copies of current peer-reviewed research papers on many transportation topics. Written for policymakers and professionals alike, Transfers aims to bring knowledge from research centers like AZTrans and other partners in the PSR network and make it accessible to those capable of bringing about action.
