Career as a Transportation Engineer
Motorways, highways, railroads, and bus lines are all built by transportation engineers. They operate with federal departments, consultancy services that help the government remediate problems, and commercial companies that make transportation products and components. Engineers also work as college professors and scholars. Any structural engineers are experts in certain fields. Traffic engineers, for instance, design new highways or traffic flows, while railroad engineers design for high-speed rail operation. Tracks, subways, express trains, and buses are all built by some technicians. Engineers are hired by municipalities, counties, and states to build new road networks or to identify alternate routes to ease traffic jams on existing highways. Engineers also design modern motorway pathways to be constructed in areas in which only residential streets exist. Other cities can consider if buses or trains are the better mode of transportation for passengers.
