The Faculty of Transport Engineering is conceived as a multi-disciplinary, business-economic and technological-technical institution that trains specialists in private and state transport enterprises, manufacturing, building and business  companies, research and project organizations, public sector and education. These specialists are eligible to expertly engineer, organize and control technological processes in transport and postal systems, effectively communicate with customers and governing bodies, carry out acquisition, transportation, business and forwarding activities, ensure operation, maintenance and renewal of transport means and infrastructure. 
In the academic year 2002/2003 the Accreditation Commission of the Czech Republic approved so called structured studies, which have been realized since. The studies contain three levels: undergraduate, postgraduate - master (engineer) and doctoral. By that, a principle step has been made in integration of our faculty in the system of the European tertiary education which enables a mutual mobility of students and pedagogues. This system solution increases career potentialities of our alumni in a global and competitive environment.
The Faculty of Transport Engineering has all the attributes of the university workplace: doctoral study, inaugural right and the right of professorial proceedings.
The faculty is involved in the projects of basic and applied research not only in the domestic but also in the field of international cooperation.
