Hi Cyburbia! I am interested in Transportation Planning and am also considering getting a dual degree in Civil Engineering. Can anyone tell me the following:
1) the benefits of getting both degrees
2) The job prospects and salaries expected
3) the best programs to do the dual, or do just the MCRP in transportation
4) Where could I get in based on stats below?
Experience: I have 3 years experience working for a nonprofit that does affordable housing policy, and for a community foundation that does regional community investment (which is my current job)
GPA: 3.45 from top private institution, Majors in History and Political Science
GRE: 740Q, 680V, 3.5W
I don't have all of the prerequisites necessary to obtain a degree in CE, but I visited Georgia Tech this past weekend and they assured me that if applying as a dual, I won't need the prereqs, as I would obtain them during the actual curriculum. Do other schools have this set up as well?
Any info on the transportation planning field would be helpful! Thank you!!
