About Transportation Engineering

What is Transportation Engineering?

Transportation engineering covers all aspects of transportation related issues, from determining the future transportation needs of a community or country through to the performance of the materials that are used to construct roads. All modes of travel are covered, from pedestrians/cyclists to cars/trucks to buses/trains to ships and planes (although our programmes at Canterbury largely deal with land transport).

Transportation Staff

The programme is supported by four academic staff and a host of visiting professors and local industry experts.

Undergraduate Courses

The Department teaches transportation topics in a range of undergraduate courses, throughout the BE professional year programmes.

Qualifications can be undertaken either full-time or by part-time study. Most courses are taught in 'block mode', allowing working candidates and those from outside Christchurch to complete their studies while remaining in full-time employment.
