Faculty of Transportation Engineering and Vehicle Engineering
About the Faculty of Transportation Engineering and Vehicle Engineering Program
Duration of BSC studies: 3.5 years (7 semesters)
Duration of MSC studies: additional 2 years (4 semesters)
The Faculty of Transportation Engineering and Vehicle Engineering (KJK) has been training engineers in the fields of transportation and vehicle engineering and logistics since 1951. The mission of the Faculty of Transportation Engineering is to be the scientific centre for all the technical, logistical, organizational and economic areas related to the transport process and vehicles which are an integral part of the system. All these areas are the basis for research activities based on engineering training and education up to Doctorate level. Within this framework the Faculty can ensure the practical utilization of the knowledge necessary for the development of society. In order to provide high level education the Faculty provides 3 basic specifications (BSc): BSc in Transportation Engineering, • BSc in Vehicle Engineering, • BSc in Logistics Engineering, • With adequate BSc qualification certified engineering qualification can be obtained in the master training specialties (MSc). All the fundamental and complementary educations continued at the Faculty are carried out in accordance with the rules of the ECTS (European Credit Transfer System).
The second stage of the training courses contains also 3 specialities in master training (MSc): vehicle engineering master specialty, • transportation engineering master specialty, • logistics engineering master specialty
Transportation engineer program objectives:
The education of transportation engineers, who are able to design, arrange, operate and control transportation and transportlogistics processes, to fulfil the related official and management tasks, as well as the works related to the selection, operation and maintenance of equipments realising processes, including the elements of infrastructure, informatics and control systems, as well. Specialisations: Road transport processes, Railway transport processes, Air transport processes, Processes of ship transport, Transportation processes, Haulage Management
Vehicle engineer program objectives:
The education of vehicle engineers, who are able to keep in operation road vehicles, railway vehicles, aircraft and ships, as well as building machines and materials-handling machines in a system oriented way, taking into consideration the characteristics of the transportation and transport-logistics processes, furthermore to solve the basic tasks of engineering, concerning their design, development, manufacturing and repair. They can perform special missions with emphasized regard to transport safety, environment protection and energy planning. Specialisations: Railway vehicles, Road vehicles, Aircraft, Ships, Buildings machines, Automated materials-handling equipments and robotics, Vehicle manufacturing, Vehicle mechatronics, Vehicle superstructures.
Logistics engineer program objectives:
The education of logistics engineers, who are able to analyse, organise and manage the logistics processes and systems related to the material and information flow (transportation, material handling, storage, commission, loading, acquisition, distribution, recycling) inside and outside of enterprises, and further, to solve the basic tasks of engineering; concerning their design, development, manufacture and repair. Specialisations: Logistic processes, Technical logistics, Shipping logistics
