What is Transportation Engineering?
Transportation engineering is the application of engineering principles to the safe and efficient transport of goods and people. Transportation engineering in Canada focuses on automobile infrastructures, although it also encompasses sea, air and rail systems.
There are three main areas: transportation planning, design, and management. Transportation planning uses technical forecasting decisions and political factors. Transportation design includes the sizing of transportation facilities, determining the materials and thickness used in pavement, and designing the geometry of the roadway. Transportation management involves traffic engineering such as tolling, variable message signs, and ramp meters.
