Welcome to Department of Transport and Infrastructure Engineering (D-TIE)!

Department of Transport and Infrastructure Engineering

Transport sector plays an indispensable role in economical development in a society. Transport sector includes the movements of people and goods, both locally and globally. Transport and Infrastructure Engineering covers land transport (highway and railway), water transport, and air transport. A better transport system may mean a more developed country!

However, human resource with transport related skills remains quite limited to support the development in Cambodia towards a more sustainable society.

Therefore, D-TIE program is a new program in Cambodia and is created at very first time at Institute of Technology of Cambodia (ITC) to respond to the increasing demand for human resources in transport and logistic industries. D-TIE is aimed to produce qualified engineers in the fields of transport (transportation and logistics) and infrastructures (design, construction, maintenance, auscultation and reparation of many types of infrastructures).


D-TIE is a 5-year engineering program.

Students who passed the ITC entrance exam will spend their first 2-year in the

foundation years, known as Tronc Commun. At Tronc Commun, students will study general courses including math, physics, chemistry, introduction to programming, introduction to technical drawing, English, French, introduction to marketing, introduction to management, philosophy, Khmer history and administration.


Starting from the third year, students will select their preferable major/department at Faculty of Civil Engineering; and take courses based on their major. If you select D-TIE program, you will study engineering courses related to civil, infrastructure, transport, and logistics.

Resources for D-TIE

Below gives summary of human and equipment resources to support D-TIE program at ITC:

  • Several experienced & high educated lecturers from ITC, partner Universities and experts.
  • Transport Laboratory for testing soil, rock, cement, concrete, steel, asphalt bitumen, etc.
  • Equipment/Tools for conducting transport study and research (e.g., Air Pollutant Measuring Machine, GNSS, LIDAR, GPS, PTV VISSIM, SPSS)
  • Many learning and research documents such as Books, Theses, Papers, Reports, etc.

Possible Working Places

  • Government official at Phnom Penh City Hall, Ministry of Public Works and Transports, Ministry of Land Management, Urban Planning and Construction, Ministry of Rural Development, etc.
  • Private companies including construction companies, consultant companies, etc.
  • National and International Institutions/NGOs (e.g., ADB, WB, JICA, UNDP)
  • Transport and logistic companies (e.g., trucking company, logistic association)
  • Academic institution as lecturers and researchers.
  • Own business (e.g., Self-employed).

To support the study/research activities in Transport and Infrastructure Engineering fields, we have established a Transport Study Unit (TSU). TSU is a study unit, a working team, and a research group. TSU has been supporting the government in improving the traffic congestion along Russian Blvd, especially the redesign of Kdan Pir Intersection, Neakvoan Intersection, etc. TSU members also join several research projects including LBE research project. To this end, TSU members can learn from actual study/research projects, involving themselves in a more practical working tasks and experiences. Often, TSU seniors will support their TSU juniors—a seniority system is applied, so that new TSU members always have their senior guidance throughout the academic year. Join us now at TSU!
