**Transportation Engineering**

**Transportation Engineering **is related to
design and analysis of Highways,
Railways, Airports, Urban and Suburban Road Networks, Parking Lots, and
Traffic Control Signal Systems.

**Highway** is defined as the main road intended for travel by
the public between important cities and towns. The
Pan-American Highway is the longest international highway which
connects many countries. It is nearly 48,000 kilometers long.
Whereas the Katy Freeway in Houston, Texas, USA, is the widest
highway having a total of 26 lanes in some sections.

**Railway**
is an energy-efficient means of transport which runs on permanent
way consisting of two parallel rails made of steel and fastened
to sleepers or ties which rest on ballast or secured to solid
foundation. Rail transport is a major form of public transport in
many countries.

Good knowledge of construction materials, geotechnics and equipments is also required by a transportation engineer.

Intelligent transportation system (ITS) is an emerging trend in leading countries which is based on applications of information technology. The components of transportation system (vehicles, roads, traffic lights, message sign etc) are now embedded with microchips and sensors enabling them to communicate with each other through wireless technology. ITS is aimed to improve safety, security and efficiency of transportations systems.
