In the late 1970s, there was an urgent need for specialists in the organization of road transportation and road safety. Therefore, in 1979, the Department “Organization of Transportation and Road Transport Safety” (Head of the Department, Associate Professor Reshetnikov Ye.B.) was founded in KhAHI. During the first 10 years, 460 specialists in this field were trained and graduated by the staff of the chair. Every year the amount of those wishing to study this demanded specialty was growing and the number of students constantly increased. The faculty of transportation systems was founded in 2002 (by the Order No. 93 of the Rector, dated June 27, 2002) on the basis of the graduate chairs “Transportation Systems” and “Transport Technologies” included in the faculty of Management and Business.
