Develop and Teach Graduate Course on Rail Terminal Design and Operations

The new CEE 598 RTD Railway Terminal Design & Operations course introduces students to the role of terminals in the freight railway transportation system, the functions required at different types of terminals, and the considerations and best practices for the design of terminal infrastructure to support these roles and functions. The objective of this course is to prepare students for the challenges facing civil engineers engaged in the planning, design, construction and operation of railway terminal facilities, and to improve the ability of each student to consider the “big picture” objectives and challenges posed by the role of railway transportation in the movement of freight. The Fall 2014 course syllabus and schedule for CEE 598 RTD developed through this project are included in this report.
