Overview

Faculty of Transportation Engineering is one of 5 facultys in UACG. Faculty of Transportation Engineering is set out separately in 1987 g.s training in the specialty "Transport Construction" in two subjects - "Road Construction" and "Railway Engineering".

Faculty of Transportation Engineering is headed by a senior management body, such as the General Assembly, which elected members and Dean of the Faculty Council. The General Assembly includes representatives of faculty, staff and students. Management is carried out by the Faculty Dean, his deputies and the Faculty Council. Dean Council is a consultative body, which includes the Dean, Deputy Deans and Heads of Departments.

Administrative activities of the Faculty are organized by the Faculty Office. Faculty and Departmental guidelines are elected for four years.

Representatives of the Department include all management units of the University.

Faculty of Transportation Engineering is set out separately in 1987 g.s training in the specialty "Transport Construction" in two subjects - "Road Construction" and "Railway Engineering". The two profiles (two specializations) exist from the beginning of higher technical education in the country. The faculty prepares specialists in all fields of modern transport infrastructure - a key component of any developed economy and society. Since 2002 he has introduced a third pathway "Construction of transportation facilities", which covers the entire spectrum of faculty training in transport and construction disciplines.

Faculty structure includes six departments:"Geotechnics"; "Road Construction"; "Railway Construction"; "Transport Structural Facilities"; "Mathematics" and "Social Sciences". Departments are equipped with modern teaching and research laboratories and computing facilities for its research in many areas, the properties of construction soils of road and railway construction materials and components for various interactions between vehicles and road construction between the superstructure facilities and the basis of stress and strain of the earth and other arrays. Developed and implemented training in a number of software related to theoretical studies and design projects in the field of geotechnics, transport facilities, road and railway construction.

Graduates "Transport Construction" get qualified "Structural Engineer Transportation Engineering" with the appropriate user profile - road construction, railway construction or construction of transportation facilities.

Engineer of Transportation Engineering - road construction has been qualified to be able to handle the design, construction and maintenance of roads, urban transport communications, travel facilities, planning, organization and traffic management, traffic safety on roads and streets, etc..
Graduates "Road Construction" may work as designers in the field of highways, roads, streets, urban communications - all specialized in the design organizations. They can work in construction organizations and road construction companies, engineering organizations, investment and control units, units for the maintenance of transport infrastructure, as well as in all construction and scientific organizations in the direction of road construction, traffic and public works.

Engineer of Transportation Engineering - Railway Engineering has special expertise in the design, construction and operation of railways and complex transportation facilities, stations and station facilities, railway facilities, special railways and cableways, tramways and other railways, subways, ports and others. Graduates' Railway Engineering "may work in design, construction, research and the like units, organizations, institutions and companies in the rail and urban rail transport and the maintenance and operation of facilities of that area.

Engineer of Transportation construction - construction of transportation facilities (Bridges, Tunnels, Harbours) is qualified to design, build and maintain roads, rail and pedestrian bridges, tunnels, underground and port facilities.

Faculty of Transportation Engineering operates research laboratories:

Laboratory of Department of GEOTECHNICS: The laboratory provides exercises in Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering; Laboratory of RAILWAY CONSTRUCTION Department. The Laboratory provides practical training to students in relation to the following disciplines: Superstructure and Maintenance of Railroads; Special Railways; Railway Stations; Station Structures and Railway operation; Railway Construction.

Laboratory of ROAD CONSTRUCTION Department: The Laboratory provides practical training to students in relation to the following disciplines: Road Construction; Reconstruction and Maintenance of Roads.
