UC Transport organised a Transport career event on Friday the 4th of October 2019. Two transport experts shared their experience and talked to our students: Mike Tottman, the Engineering and Survey Manager at Harrison Grierson in Christchurch. Mike has a large number of years of experience in leading the delivery of commuter rail, light rail, guided bus, bus priority, park and ride and road transport projects. And Grace Ryan, a chartered Transport Engineer who works at GHD, and has eight years of broad experience across road safety, road design, multi-modal design, transport planning and integrated transport assessment.
Mike and Grace shared their experience related to transport projects that they worked at, shed some lights on the rewards and challenges of a transport career. They shared some advice to the next generation of transport engineers. This event was a success and everyone enjoyed the presentations.
Thank you to the ITE-ANZ for supporting this event. The organising team included Dana Abudayyeh, Ashu Kedia, Neetha Maria Aji, Abhirup Basu Roy Chowdhury, Don McKenzie, David Mitchell, Mofreh Saleh and Douglas Munro.
