Transport Engineering

This professional discipline deals with planning, design, construction, maintenance, and operation of transportation facilities. The facilities support road / highway, railroad, port / harbour and airport Engineering. The design aspects of transportation engineering include the sizing of transportation facilities (how many lanes or how much capacity the facility has), determining the materials and thickness used in pavement designing the geometry (vertical and horizontal alignment) of the roadway (or track).
