About Us

According to the Urban Mobility Report , congestion caused 4.2 billion hours of travel delay and 2.9 billion gallons of wasted fuel in 2007. Traffic Engineering discipline prides itself on offering the mobility choices to reduce congestion and emissions. The TransTech Laboratory was established as part of TechMRT in fall of 2004 when Dr. Hongchao Liu was brought to the university.
