Highway Safety Engineers analyze engineering problems, apply technical expertise and engineering judgment and produce innovative solutions through the use of complex interactive computer systems to meet legal and management objectives. Highway Safety Engineers also provide professional and technical excellence in highway engineering, including identifying, preparing, designing, and planning order works and services. The position entails corresponding with elected officials, district councils, and other stakeholders to manage the implementation of engineering projects. Engineers must provide timely and accurate information to these groups as well as the general public on highway-related matters. Lastly, Highway Safety Engineers support health and safety, environmental management systems, quality management systems, and construction design management.
Master's degree or PhD in Engineering
Senior Human Factors Engineers apply human performance principles, methodologies, and technologies to the design of human/machine systems and products. Senior human factors engineers develop and implement research methodologies and statistical analysis plans to test and evaluate developmental prototypes used in all phases of products development and processes, and designs and executes tests to simulate product use for the purposes of concept selection/refinement, requirements development, use related risk identification and formal usability validation with intended users. They also identify and analyzes technological problems or risks, performs theoretical human factors investigations, and develops and implements research and analysis plans.
Human Factors Researchers help prioritize users’ needs and evaluate experiences at different stages of development. Human factors researchers are responsible for leading research to better understand the needs of users and sharing insights on how internal processes and products can be improved to optimize how we empower users to navigate their digital journeys. Human factors researchers are often required to have a BA/BS degree in English, communications, or equivalent practical experience.
