The Ministry of Transport and Communications has announced that the Transport Engineering Conference & Exhibition will be organised by the Qatar Society of Engineers under the sponsorship of MoTC in co-operation with Expo Tale, the event management company, from April 5 to 7 at the Sharq Village and Spa.
The MoTC was represented at the media event by director of International Relations Department Noor Ibrahim Shahdad, who also doubles as the acting director of Public Relations and Communication Department at the ministry, while the Qatar Society of Engineers was represented by the chairman of the society’s board of directors Khaled bin Ahmed al-Nasr.
Al-Nasr said the Transport Engineering Conference & Exhibition is the first of its kind as it is characterised by its comprehensiveness in discussing the three recognised sectors of transportation – land, air and sea. 
The conference will also discuss the ability to use engineering standards and prepare appropriate designs, research and development and follow-up everything that is new in the transport engineering sector. It even offers alternatives to engineering solutions for road, rail, airport and port projects, as well as choosing the most appropriate technical and economic solution in an attempt to develop and update everything related to this sector.
Al-Nasr emphasised that the conference promotes engineering principles in the fields of transportation engineering, including transportation, roads, building materials for roads, railroads, airports, and ports, the development of freight methods, customs clearance technology, traffic engineering and related systems, as well as collective transport planning. 
The event will focus on traffic safety, advanced technologies, and the ability to apply these engineering principles and develop them and research knowledge related to informatics in addition to utilising the computer software for engineering representation, designing, and planning roads and developing them, as well as the traffic control systems.
Al-Nasr explained that contacts have been made with the Gulf Engineering Union and the Federation of Arab Engineers, who expressed their desire to participate in this vital conference. 
Shahdad said the conference is organised based on the country’s adoption of technology developments and latest updates and the considerable attention it pays to providing everything that could further serve the people of Qatar, thus raising the country’s name and profile on global map among major countries.
Shahdad said that MoTC, with its various departments, will have a key role in this conference; presenting scientific papers and lectures to the concerned engineering sector. The ministry, she added, works side by side with the Qatar Society of Engineers to organise and manage this conference during the coming period until the date of the event.
Al-Nasr said a specialised exhibition will be held on the sidelines of the conference, through which the government and private sectors can participate and will have the opportunity to display their engineering products and solutions, as well as everything new in this field.
Participation in the conference and exhibition as well as sponsorship opportunities are available to all through the official website of the association. Those wishing to participate can browse the website for all the details as well as submit a request to participate electronically via the website www.qatarse.org.
Al-Nasr said the submitted session papers will be presented to the scientific committee that was formed in co-operation with Qatar University for approval to be part of the scientific papers program at the conference.
