Description

This collaborative National Center for Freight & Infrastructure Research & Education (C-FIRE) funded academic research is focused on compiling a best practices in transportation education. The UW-Superior research team was tasked with evaluating undergraduate education. This portion of the study developed a list of universities in the United States that offer bachelor degree programs in transportation, logistics, and/or supply chain management. An inventory of universities with relevant degrees was created using professional societies and academic organizations as the primary sources. Categories of data collection include type of degree, location of university, and required program courses. Data collection was achieved by obtaining information from official university websites, and contacting university academic advisors. One of the results show that few universities offer transportation undergraduate majors, while a majority offer supply chain management majors. Findings of this study will be assembled into the collaborative C-FIRE research, resulting in transportation education best practices.
