M.Tech in Transportation Engineering and Management

Civil Engineering primarily deals with planning, design, construction, and operation of infrastructural facilities essential to modern life, ranging from transit systems to offshore structures to space satellites. Major disciplines within Civil Engineering that are closely interrelated are structural, environmental, geotechnical, water resources, transportation, construction and urban planning.

Transportation Engineering is one of the major branches of Civil Engineering and it involves planning, design, construction, operation and maintenance of transportation facilities. The facilities support air, highway, railroad, pipeline, water, and even space transportation. Transportation Engineering includes sizing of transportation facilities, selection of materials and design of pavement and geometry of roadway.

In Transportation Engineering, students acquire advanced know-how concerning the planning, design, operations, performance, evaluation, maintenance and rehabilitation of transportation systems including their economics and social aspects. This field imbibes in each student analytic, problem-solving and management skills suitable for public and private sector professional works. Students are trained on the application of various software and programming skills for simulation of traffic flow and Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) to address urban transportation issues. The challenges faced in Transportation Engineering are developing network links and major terminals to satisfy transportation demands, with due regard for the resultant land-use, environmental and other impacts of these facilities.

The School of Civil Engineering at REVA UNIVERSITY offers M. Tech. in Transportation Engineering and Management –a postgraduate program to create motivated, innovative, creative and thinking graduates to fill the roles of Transportation Engineers and managers who can conceptualize, design, analyze, develop and manage transportation systems to meet the modern-day requirements.

Both public and private sectors across the globe are investing significantly in road development, airport construction, high-speed railways, metro rail, bridges, waterways and many such infrastructure projects necessitating the need for Transportation Engineers.

In this context, the School of Civil Engineering at REVA UNIVERSITY would like to add to the growing human resources needs of the infrastructure sector as transportation designers and managers through its M. Tech. program in Transportation Engineering and Management.
