History of the Department

Training of specialists in the motor transport field began in the Central Industrial Extramural Technical Higher Educational Institution in 1948 (from 1957 the Northwest Technical Institute).

In 1990, following requests from Motor Vehicles Departments from different regions of Russia and on the initiative of the Head of the Department of Automobile Transport and Candidate of Technical Sciences Professor V.S. Sokolov (Head of Department 1979-1996) a new academic specialization, 240100 Transportation Organization and Vehicle Control (Automobile Transport), currently specialization 190701.65, was introduced at the institute. Due to the valuable contribution of Professor V.S. Sokolov, the first State Educational Standard of this specialization was developed and work on creating methodological support was started.

In 2007, in order to improve the Northwest State Technical University, the rector took the decision to split up the Department of Automobile Transport into the Department of Motor Vehicles and Vehicle Fleet and the Department of Transportation Organization.

In 2008, by Order № 29, dated 31.01.08, at the Institute of Automobile Transport, the Management and Traffic Safety Department was organized.

In 2012 due to the merger of the two universities the two departments were united and a new department formed under the name Transportation Organization and Traffic Safety. The Candidate of Technical Sciences and Associate Professor Alekseev Vladimir Alekseevich was elected as Head of the Department.
