Traian Vuia (until 1950, Bujoru; Hungarian: Bozsor) is a commune in Timiș County, western Romania. It is composed of six villages: Jupani (Zsuppány), Săceni (Kisszécsény), Sudriaș (the commune center; Bégaszederjes), Surducu Mic (Kisszurdok), Susani (Bégaszuszány) and Traian Vuia.

It is the birthplace of Romanian inventor Traian Vuia, who designed and built an early heavier than air aircraft in 1906, and flew it for 60 feet at an altitude of about 3 feet.
