Transportation engineers are involved with the safe and efficient movement of both people and goods. They design and maintain all types of transportation facilities, including highways and streets, mass transit systems, railroads, airfields, ports and harbors.

Transportation engineers apply technological knowledge as well as an understanding of the economic, political and social factors in their projects. They must work directly with urban planners because the quality of a community is directly related to the quality of the transportation system.
