The Transportation Infrastructure and Systems Engineering (TISE) Program of the Via Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Virginia Tech provides unique graduate study and research opportunities. The program includes all aspects of planning, design, construction, operation, management, and rehabilitation of transportation infrastructure and systems. TISE program is multimodal, with an emphasis on ground transportation by private automobiles and transit, and air transportation. As its name suggests, TISE Program consists of 2 main sections, namely, Infrastructure and Systems. The main focus of the Infrastructure section is on the life-cycle performance of the civil engineering infrastructure including the performance of Portland cement concrete, hot-mix asphalt and composites; nondestructive evaluation; and transportation infrastructure management. The main focus of the System section is on transportation infrastructure system capacity management versus capacity expansion
