The concept of the global village was realized mainly due to efficient transport facilities. Natural endowment of resources and competitive advantage of locations prompt increased volume of transport both of people and goods. Each nation, including Nepal, is investing heavily to connect inaccessible areas to the national transport networks. Yet, everyday movement in urban centers is hampered by congestion, insufficiency of public transport facilities, traffic accidents, and other conditions. Rural transport facilities remain inadequate and fragile. Thus, the issue of transportation continues to be crucial. The TEAM program aims to expose students to resolve all transport-related problems, in the rural and urban areas. The coursework and research activities equip students with advanced competence in designing transport facilities and their operation, maintenance, and management.
