The Transportation Engineering Program (TEP) at the University of Maryland provides its students with in-depth knowledge of the range of topics that are of importance to the field from the more traditional areas of transportation planning, travel behavior, traffic operations, safety, and design to system optimization, transportation economics and policy, infrastructure vulnerability and protection, emissions estimation and sustainability analysis. With expertise in all transport modes, our students are trained to tackle problems involving both passengers and freight that arise along our roadways, airways, railways and waterways, as well as in their intermodal components. The problems that arise in the interdisciplinary field of transportation are complex and continue to change in character with changes in society, technology and the environment. TEP recognizes that to develop professionals who are capable of analyzing and solving these difficult problems, our students must master material in many disciplines, including for example mathematics, computer science, architecture and urban planning, operations research and management science, logistics, economics and psychology. With this training and an emphasis on both academic education and professional development, our graduates are now: professors and researchers at universities and research institutes in the U.S. and abroad; industry experts in local, national and international firms; and local, state and federal government officials.

Stanley Young Stanley Young began working at the Center for Advanced Transportation Technology in 2006. His work in advanced transportation technology began in 1992 at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory during the early days of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) development. From 1994 through 2006 he led various research and development initiatives at the Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) in partnership with universities that related to topics and programs in transportation planning, pavement management, information management, and automated transport. He also initiated KDOT’s Advanced Technology Research Program. Since 2006, Dr. Young has been on the research faculty at CATT, where he has continued his interest in various aspects of ITS technologies. His work while at CATT includes development of traffic monitoring technology utilizing signals of opportunity, operations performance measures, and management of the I95 Vehicle Probe Project, an infrastructure traffic, monitoring system the spans the eastern seaboard of the United States. Dr. Young received his Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from LeTourneau University, his Master of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from Kansas State University and his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Kansas State University.
