Exploring Career Tracks for Rail Engineers

What does it take to integrate the workforce needs of passenger rail with the curricula of leading college engineering programs? Michael Loehr, center, global practice leader, transit and rail, track and civil, CH2M, discussed some technical aspects of engineering-related careers in passenger rail (among other topics) during the biennial Passenger Rail Engineering Education Symposium (p-REES) conducted at the Los Angeles Trade-Technical College in Los Angeles. APTA Chair Doran J. Barnes and LA Metro CEO Phillip Washington offered remarks that encouraged attending college professors and faculty to keep transit’s workforce needs in mind when developing courses. The three-day program was funded by APTA’s business members and held in partnership with the American Railway and Maintenance-of-Way Association (AREMA).
