Freight & Maritime Education
Rutgers offers graduate-level, industry-related courses on freight and maritime transportation; port planning, management, and operations; transportation systems analysis; environmental management of maritime infrastructure; security and safety in maritime transportation and port operations; and freight terminals and distribution facilities.
These courses serve as the core of a freight and maritime transportation certificate program. Future plans are for a cooperative graduate degree with partners in Europe, the Middle East, and the Far East.
