Transportation engineering is the emerging field of engineering which has a greater role in modern day transportation system where connectivity is of greater importance. It is an application of technology and scientific principles to the planning, functional design, operation and management of any mode of transportation in order to provide for the safe, efficient, rapid, comfortable, convenient, economical, and environmental-friendly movement of people and goods. It is a very diverse and multidisciplinary field, which deals with the planning, design, operation and maintenance of transportation systems. 

This profession carries a distinct societal responsibility, particularly in the modern complex society. Transportation planners and engineers recognize the fact that transportation systems constitute a potent force in shaping the course of regional development. Planning and development of transportation facilities generally raise living standards and enhances the aggregate of community values.
