Brief History


Degree Offered:  

    B.S. (about 500 enrolled undergraduate students)

    M.S. (about 25 enrolled graduate students)

Chair: Wen, Yu-Hung

The Department was established in 1986 for the needs of national infrastructure, construction and economic development. Over the past three decades, we have been aiming to equip students with professional knowledge of highways, railways, marine, aviation, and urban transportation. Education delivered in the Department includes transportation theories and practices with respect to planning, engineering, and operations. 
The junior classes focus on the fundamental transportation and management courses. The senior classes emphasize on the interdisciplinary integration. Emphasis is also placed upon the cultivation of students' ability to implement systems analysis, the use of Computer Aided Instruction (CAI), and actual case studies.
Our students are expected to conduct independent research and address teamwork projects. A graduate program of transportation science was established in 1995. As of 2017, we have about 3,500 graduates―3,350 with a B.S. degree and 150 with a M.S. degree. Most of them hold a transportation-related position in the public and private sectors.
