Transportation is an engineering field that studies the layout and construction of railway, highway, waterway and air transportation infrastructure, the use of transportation tools, transportation information engineering and control, and transportation operation and management. The unit authorized by the Master of Engineering Degree cultivates senior engineering and technical personnel engaged in the survey, design, construction and maintenance of railway, highway, port, ocean, waterway and airport projects, locomotive, automobile, ship and aircraft application projects, railway, highway, waterway, aviation information engineering and control, railway, highway, waterway and air transport planning, operation and management.

Transportation is the basic need and prerequisite for economic development, the survival foundation and civilization symbol of modern society, the infrastructure and important ties of social economy, the pioneer of modern industry and the leading department of the national economy, the important tool for resource allocation and macro-control, the important factors for the formation of land development, urban and economic layout, and the promotion of social division of labor, the development of large industries and the formation of economies of scale, Consolidate the country's political unity, strengthen national defense construction, and expand international economic and trade cooperation and personnel exchanges to play an important role. In short, transportation has important economic, social, political and national defense significance. In May 2021, the Ministry of Transport issued the Statistical Bulletin on the Development of the Transport Industry in 2020 
Modern transportation modes mainly include railway transportation, highway transportation, waterway transportation, air transportation and pipeline transportation. Each of the five modes of transportation has its own advantages and disadvantages in terms of technology and economy, and all have their own suitable scope of use.
Air transport; airfreight; airlift; Air transportation is a mode of transportation in which aircraft or other aircraft are used as carriers. Also called air transportation. Generally, the goods are in urgent need. If the road transportation cannot meet the time limit required by the customer, the customer will choose air transportation. Air transportation is fast and safe. The on-time super efficiency has won a considerable market, greatly shortened the delivery time, and played a great role in promoting the logistics supply chain to speed up the capital turnover and circulation. Major airlines have invested in a large number of flights to share the cake of freight. However, air transportation costs more than sea transportation.
