You will have the opportunity to develop safe, efficient, and reliable transportation systems that will serve all modes of travel within our communities and the country for years to come. To be successful you will need to be capable and interested in learning a variety of new skills through both mentorship and independent review of multiple documents from national best practices to client-specific standards. You will have to think critically to apply those standards to the given project to develop exceptional quality construction plans and effectively communicate the methods and results through presentations, memos, and reports.
