This fall I am taking Urban Transportation Systems instead of my originally-scheduled Engineering Accounting.
This course is a special topics survey course that will cover the math of transportation planning, such as roadway capacity, and the practicalities of managing traffic control, such as timing of traffic signals and appropriate speed limits.
SMU’s Engineering School officially accepted me into the DEEM program. This summer I am taking course 3 out of the 12 necessary to complete the degree program.
I have been assigned an adviser in the Doctor of Engineering in Engineering Management program. He says that I am probably accepted into the program. It sounds like all that remains are procedural issues, mostly paperwork.
I have already gotten my praxis topic approved. Guess what it is?? Speed limits! My advisor has some experience with traffic engineering, and he showed interest in the subject.
I am so lucky. How many people get to pursue a passion for academic purposes? Now I will have a real excuse to finally thoroughly research this topic.
The EMIS department chairman seem to believe that my plans for Doctor of Engineering in Engineering Management are reasonable, so I am applying to the Doctor of Engineering in Engineering Management program.
Somehow I got a 60 on the final exam. There must have been a curve because I came out of the course with a B.
