It is a great pleasure and honour for me to serve as the Head of Centre for Transportation systems (CTRANS) at IIT Roorkee.
CTRANS started its journey in the year 2005 and was established as one of the leading and promising interdisciplinary centre focused on the areas of transportation research and practices.
Today the CTRANS is positioned to nurture the next generation of professionals and academic leadership to bring a CHANGE in the way we develop the transportation and infrastructure for our society.
The academic focus of our M. Tech program is to bridge the latest knowledge and skills in transportation policy/planning/management/engineering with the contextual practice need of the country. We expect to introduce a completely new curriculum from the academic session 2023-24.
Our research endeavour through academic and sponsored research revolves around the interdisciplinary approach and innovation. Research scholars are dedicated to bringing significant contributions to contextual and futuristic issues in the transportation sector with quality publications. We strive to inculcate an ambience where every individual of the Centre aims to reach their fullest potential and serve the country with professionalism and integrity. With the 75th year of our independence and the 175th year celebration of IIT Roorkee, we take a pledge to achieve newer heights towards further excellence in academic parlance.
I on behalf of the CTRANS community invite you all in the Centre.
