Transport engineering is the application of scientific and technological principles in the planning, functional design, operation and facilities management for any means of transport (road, rail, water and air) in order to provide a safe, fast, comfortable, convenient, economic travel for people and goods. Transport engineering is connected to similar disciplines such as: electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, aerospace and marine engineering.

The main branches of transport engineering are: traffic engineering, highway engineering, port and harbour engineering, airport engineering, infrastructure engineering. Academic study programmes include topics such as transportation safety and design, urban planning, traffic engineering and simulation, highway traffic operations, public transportation systems.

Transportation engineers apply technological knowledge as well as an understanding of the economic, political, and social factors. They usually work directly with urban planners to ensure that the transportation system contributes to the quality of life of the community. Transport engineering students will obtain fundamental theoretical and practical knowledge to perform engineering calculations, demonstrations and applications using specialised transport engineering software. They will assess interdependencies between transport, urban and regional planning following requirements of sustainable mobility.

Graduates can follow careers in railway companies, public transport companies, local roads administration, research institutes, road and rail traffic design.
