Employment Resources and Professions Available to Transportation Engineering Graduates

Many municipalities and government agencies employ transportation engineers to design and maintain the infrastructure of roads, railways, airports, and supporting infrastructure (eg. Via Rail Canada, Transport Canada). They usually work in collaboration with civil, environmental, and geological engineers while on these projects.

Employment is also available with trucking companies, where they are responsible for designing the most effective routes for truckers and aid in the development of traffic and truck monitoring systems.

Transportation engineers can also find work in academia, teaching engineering at the post-secondary level while at the same time performing original research. Academic research is commonly in collaboration with private industry or government.

Students with a degree in transportation engineering can go on to acquire their professional engineering (P.Eng) designation, which allows them to work in most government careers as an engineer. The degree can also serve as a stepping-stone for those who wish to pursue a career in law or business, as this degree is accepted as a prerequisite for entry to most of those programs. It is also useful for those who wish to specialize in engineering law, or for those who wish to become managers of a large engineering firm.
