1 Transportation Engineering Name Title Company School, Date, or Other information on where you are making the presentation

2 2 Outline What is an engineer? Different types of engineers Civil engineers Transportation engineers Education New solutions Site transportation planning

3 3 What is an Engineer? Engineers are problem solvers—people who make things work better, more efficiently, quicker, and less expensively Engineers apply math and science to create something of value from our natural resources

4 4 Different Types of Engineers Chemical Electrical & Computer Mechanical Industrial And Civil Engineers! Add a picture for each discipline and have it appear with the discipline…

5 5 Civil Engineers Structures Hydraulics/Hydrology Wastewater/Environmental Geotechnical Transportation Add a picture for each discipline and have it appear with the discipline…

6 The Transportation Profession Add pictures here of some different modes of transportation or other pictures related to transportation…

7 7 Transportation Engineers What do Transportation Engineers do? –No ER, West Wing, L.A. Law that glamorizes the transportation profession –Transportation Engineers are, however, making a difference all around us

8 8 Transportation Engineers Add a picture here of a train and talk about how most people think that Transportation Engineers drive trains…

9 9 Transportation Engineers Add pictures here of construction and other things that transportation engineers do…

10 10 Transportation Engineers Insert local pictures or videos here – I used crash videos from TTI

11 11 Transportation Engineers Insert local pictures or videos here – I used crash videos from TTI

12 12 Transportation Engineers Insert local pictures or videos here – I used crash videos from TTI

13 13 Transportation Engineers I include a series of 4 or 5 funny signs to talk about some of the things Transportation Engineers do and to get the students to think about the signs…

14 14 Transportation Engineers

15 15 What is Transportation? Streets, highways, and transit systems that allow people and goods to move safely and efficiently –Backbone for a strong economy –Key contributor in quality of life How many types of transportation can you name? –Write down on a piece of paper all of the types of transportation you can think of

16 16 Transportation Modes Air PipelineWater Surface Add a picture for each mode and have it appear with the mode…

17 17 Surface Modes Highways & Streets Bicycle Pedestrian Transit Add a picture for each mode and have it appear with the mode…

18 18 Freight Truck and railroad: –Key component in the economy –Provides goods and services Photo credit: Dan Kuhn, UDOT Add a picture of freight movement…

19 19 Air Dual purpose –Movement of people and goods –Creation/expansion of business and industry Photo credit: Used with permission. Add a picture of air movement…

20 20 Water Water transportation –Primarily for freight movement –Bulky commodities with low cost per unit National system –Waterways –Lakes –Oceans –Ports Add a picture of water movement…

21 21 Transportation Facts Nationwide 1.6 million hours per day stuck in traffic Avg. person spends one hour per day in their car 160,000 traffic signals in the US Cost of congestion is $40 Billion per year Add a picture of congestion…

22 22 Transportation in Utah Transportation is growing at a rate 2x that of population –Rush hour today in Salt Lake City – 1 hr –5 to 7 years from now – 2 hrs –10 years from now – 3 hrs 90 minutes to travel from Provo to Salt Lake City Add a picture of congestion and modify the information to match your state…

23 23 Transportation in Utah Solutions? –Optimize existing infrastructure –Construct new facilities –More widespread use of advanced technology Add a picture of a TOC…
