The mission of the Department of Transportation Planning and Engineering is to educate scientists engineers and to promote science in the field of transportation planning and engineering. High scientific standards and performance are key objectives in all education and research activities of the Department of Transportation Planning and Engineering.
The Department of Transportation Planning and Engineering was established in 1982 within the Civil Engineering School of the National Technical University of Athens, although transportation engineering courses were already contained in the School curriculum since the 50s’. Currently, the Department offers 16 undergraduate courses at the School of Civil Engineering and contributes to another 6 undergraduate and postgraduate courses at NTUA Engineering Schools.
The Department of Transportation Planning and Engineering is composed by three Laboratories: Pavement Engineering, Railways and Transport and
Traffic Engineering, in which advanced research is carried out, exploiting their highly equipped facilities in the NTUA Campus in Athens.
The staff of the Department of Transportation Planning and Engineering is composed of more than 70 highly qualified personnel (7 Faculty members) supporting the education and research activities of the Department, of the School and of NTUA.
The scientific work of NTUA Scientists is highly recognized by the Greek and the Global transportation engineering scientific community, through numerous scientific publications and the respective citations, their contribution in numerous national and international research projects, scientific Committees and Working Groups and several scientific achievements and awards. Faculty Members are representing Greece in several International Organisations and are often serving the Greek Government as of Ministers, Secretary Generals, Heads of major Public Authorities and Members their Boards of Directors.
The Alumni of the Department of Transportation Planning and Engineering are excelling in Greece and worldwide in various fields of the transportation planning and engineering science, including the design, implementation and operation of major transportation projects in Greece and worldwide, as well as in world class Transportation Engineering Schools and other Organisations.
