The topic that we are going to discuss is about transportational engineering. After FSc many students are confused to choose their field so we discuss in detail about the transportational engineering so let’s talk about it

Transpotational Engineering Overview

Transportation Engineering is the application of scientific principles and technologies to the planning, design, analysis, operation, and management of transportation systems for a full range of modes of transportation, e.g. highway, urban transit, air, rail and water, in order to provide for the movement of people and goods from one place to another in a safe and efficient manner. As a sub-discipline of Civil Engineering, this specialty is organized around society’s need to provide an adequate transportation infrastructure and involves broad interaction with other disciplines. Transport engineering is the application of scientific and technological principals in the planning, functional design, operation and facilities management for any means of transport (road, rail, water and air) in ordered 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 harbor engineering, airport engineering, infrastructure engineering. 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 ensures that the transportation system contributes to the quality of life of the community. Transport engineering student will obtain fundamental theoretical and practical knowledge to perform engineering calculations, demonstrations and applications using specialized transport engineering software. They will assess interdependencies between transpot, urban and regional planning following requirements of sustainable mobility.

  • Graduates can follow careers in railway companies
  • Public transport companies
  • Local road administration
  • Research institutes
  • Road and rail traffic design

Career opportunities

Common roles include transportation engineer (intelligent transportation systems).

Your routine duties are likely to include:

  • Simulating transport problems using computer models, and working out solutions
  • Analyzing and interpreting data gathered from transport studies
  • Looking at schemes to manage traffic
  • Forecasting the impact of new developments
  • Studying accident ‘black spots’ to design road safety improvements
  • Writing reports for funding bids and planning authorities
  • Acting as an expert witness during public enquiries

A key part of your job will be balancing the social, economic and environmental needs of the whole community. You’ll also try to influence attitudes towards alternative methods of transport, for example by encouraging people to move away from using private car

To be an effective transport planner you’ll need:

  • The ability to think around a problem
  • Good Project Management Skills
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Confidence in dealing with people
  • Report writing and presentation skills
  • Good negotiating skills
  • A knowledge of Computer Modeling Software
  • An understanding of transport issues
  • A commitment to continuous professional development
