Transportation engineers design and operate highways, airports, railroads and public transit. They conduct research in the field of transportation including design & operation, traffic flow & control, demand analysis & planning; and related work in economics, finance & administration. Study in the field of transportation engineering provides opportunities for the study of land-use transportation planning, infrastructure planning & management and environmental aspects of transportation.
The field exposes students to the process of alleviating transportation problems. The coursework and research in the area provide advanced knowledge in transportation planning and economics, traffic engineering, and the design of highways/pavements and other transportation facilities. Transportation Engineering students acquire advanced skills concerning the planning, design, operations, maintenance, rehabilitation, performance, and evaluation of transportation systems, including their economic and public policy aspects.
Our vision is to equip the student with development of analytic, problem-solving, design, and management skills suitable for public and private sector professional work.
