   - Transportation modes
   - Development and transportation
   - Various aspects of transportation engineering (e.g., pavement design, traffic engineering, transport planning, public transportation, etc.)

- Layout, Orientation, and Geometric Design
   - Geometric Design of highways and railways (e.g., horizontal alignment, vertical alignment, etc.)
   - Geometry of hill roads
   - Orientation of runways, and geometry of taxiways
   - Curve layout

- Pavements and Rail Tracks
   - Types of pavements
   - Analysis and design of flexible pavements
   - Pavement drainage
   - Construction and maintenance of flexible pavements
   - Introduction to design of rail tracks

- Traffic Engineering
   - Parameters characterizing traffic flow (e.g. density, speed, flow)
   - Data collection techniques for traffic parameters and delay studies
   - Introduction to traffic flow theory (including description of speed-density, speed-flow, and flow density relations)
   - Introductions to concept of capacity and level of service

- Transportation and the Environment
   - Course Outline for Transportation II

- Overview of Transportation
   - Basic concepts of pavement analysis and design

   - Construction of rigid pavements
   - Quality control in pavement construction
   - Comparative study of rigid versus flexible pavements
   - Modern materials in pavements

- Traffic Engineering
   - Theory of uninterrupted and interrupted traffic flow
   - Delay analysis
   - Capacity and level-of-service analysis for various facilities
   - Design of traffic facilities (like, expressways, channelization, unsignalized and signalized intersections, airport circulation, parking facilities, etc.)

- Travel demand analysis and transportation planning
   - The planning process
   - Sequential demand analysis
