  The major of traffic engineering started to recruit traffic engineering undergraduate students in 1999. It is one of domestic key universities to recruits traffic engineering undergraduate students early, and has a level of professional characteristics in traffic planning, road engineering, and traffic safety direction study. Now a total of more than 600 undergraduate students have graduated. It has rich strength on professional teachers and scientific research. There are 16 professional teachers with 2 professors, 5 associate professors. The structure of teachers' team is reasonable and young teachers are the main body and 10 people obtained doctor’s degree among them. The professional teachers bear the dozens of national, provincial and local government and enterprise entrusts scientific research projects, with an average scientific research fund 3 million RMB every year. It has Traffic and Transportation Engineering as first-level discipline with Master and doctor degree authorization centers. Now there are 30 master’s students in studying.
