Description for Degrees

The Department of Transportation Engineering and Management was established in February 2006 under the Faculty of Civil Engineering, UET, Lahore. The department offer Bachelor and Postgraduate degrees in Transportation Engineering. The establishment of this department was demand based to improve existing transportation infrastructure, which in the present situation is in relatively mismanaged and becoming overly congested. In order to coup with this challenge, the department offers quality engineering education to students in the field of transportation engineering, comparable with accredited international standards as well as catering the industrial, technological and research needs of the country.  The department is looking forward to strengthen University-Industry relationship, which is vital for producing trained and skilled work force having extended focus on innovation, value addition and entrepreneurship. The development of transportation infrastructure depend on developing a larger cadre of transportation professionals capable of planning, designing, constructing, managing, operating, and maintaining of various modes of transportations as airways, seaways, highways, railways and pipeways. Furthermore, overall awareness of transportation of the general public is also the concern of the department, necessary to ensure community and financial support for future transportation projects.
