The Mission of the Department of Transportation Planning and Engineering is to educate scientists engineers and 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 Vision of the Department of Transportation Planning and Engineering is a future with highly efficient, green and safe transport systems in Greece, in Europe and globally, through high level scientific research and technological development supporting evidence based decision making in all aspects of all transport modes and types.
The Scope of the Department of Transportation Planning and Engineering comprises all transport modes (road, rail, water, air, combined), all transport types (people and goods, urban and interurban, national and international, terminals) and all phases of transportation projects (planning, design, tendering, construction, delivery for operation, operation, management, maintenance).
The Department of Transportation Planning and Engineering lies on more than 70 highly qualified scientists (including 5 Faculty members), is composed by three Laboratories: Pavement Engineering, Railways and Transport & Traffic Engineering, offers 20 undergraduate courses at the School of Civil Engineering and contributes to another 9 undergraduate and postgraduate courses at NTUA Engineering Schools and in the last 40 years has produced highly innovative research through more than 1.289 Diploma Theses, 67 PhD Theses and within more than 380 National, European and International Research Projects, which led to more than 1.400 publications in international scientific journals and conference proceedings widely cited worldwide.
