Next-Generation Transportation Certificate (Online)

We need transportation that stands up to the challenges of the future.

Civil engineers, urban planners, and community leaders face formidable transportation challenges today: new patterns and modes of movement, decaying infrastructure, global-scale logistics, and an explosion of data and disruptive technologies.

SFU’s online Next-Generation Transportation Certificate is designed to help mid-career professionals use next-generation transportation strategies to deal with these challenges and advance livable and sustainable cities of the future. Looking at today’s needs as well as five years into the future, next-generation transportation professionals aim for solutions that, by working across disciplines, support community resilience in the face of uncertainty and change.
