School of Transportation 


Founded in May of 1992, School of Transportation is one of the oldest and best schools in highway transportation fields among others. It was home to the first automobile operation and repair major in China, which was founded in 1956. It was renamed the School of Transportation of Jilin University in June 2000. The School has five undergraduate majors: Transportation Engineering, Logistics Engineering, Traffic Engineering, Civil Engineering (road and bridge), and Automobile Service Engineering. At present, there are 109 faculty members at the School including 19 Ph.D. supervisors, and 22 full professors. 85% of the faculty members hold a Ph.D. degree or higher. As a result of decades of consistent construction, the research and education at our school have improved considerably, keeping up with the advanced technologies worldwide which are relative to Intelligent Transportation Systems, Smart Vehicles & Sustainable Development, Transportation Planning & Logistics and Road & Bridge Safety Monitoring & maintenance. The School has established cooperative relationships with over 10 foreign universities and has the ability to take on major technology programs and train high-level talents. The School plays a dominant role in fields related to traffic.
