Graduate Certificate program in Civil Engineering at University of Delaware
Civil and Environmental Engineering
In freight, passenger (inter-urban and commuter), transit, and emerging high-speed rail. With increased activity comes the need for highly trained professionals to ensure operating safety, efficiency, and cost-effective use of resources. Yet many of the most experienced engineers and supervisors are retiring, leaving a gap in knowledge, experience and capability. This graduate certificate is also designed for engineering professionals working in the area of railroad engineering or for those desiring to expand their knowledge of railroad engineering and related engineering disciplines, to thereby become viable candidates for advancement in the railroad industry.
Two courses, selected from the following (additional courses to be added to over time):.
Introduction to Railroad Safety and Derailment Engineering (3cr.).
Railroad and transit engineering, risk management, track component failure and degradation analysis, track inspection technology, safety and derailment prevention.
Geotechnical engineering soil mechanics and soil shear behavior slope stability foundation engineering.
Matriculated graduate students in civil or mechanical engineering are eligible to pursue the Graduate Certificate in Railroad Engineering, using their elective course options to focus on the field and earn the certificate.
