Raleigh - The following are highlights from this week at the N.C. Department of Transportation. The below stories are also featured in our weekly newscast, N.C. Transportation Now, which can be viewed by clicking here.
National Engineers Week
Feb. 21-27 marks National Engineers Week, and we want to take this opportunity to thank all our engineers who work to improve our connectivity and enhance our quality of life. Founded 65 years ago by the Society of Professional Engineers, the goals of National Engineers Week are to: celebrate how engineers make a difference in our world; increase public dialogue about the need for engineers; and bring engineering to life for kids, educators and parents. More information about the week can be found here.
NCDOT Careers and Internships
NCDOT's Office of Education Initiatives shares these same goals and works throughout the year to support K-12, college and post-graduate students with the goal of developing a talented workforce to meet North Carolina's future transportation demands.
While engineers play an important role at NCDOT, it takes a diverse workforce -all working together -to ensure we achieve our mission to connect people, products and places. That's why we employ thousands of people in a wide variety of positions throughout the state ranging from geology and information technology to planning, communications, legal and so much more.
From internships opportunities to full-time positions, you can help us shape the future of transportation in North Carolina. If you are up for the challenge, visit our Careers page to view current summer internship opportunities and job openings and learn more about working for NCDOT.
Public Meetings Page
Another great online resource is our Public Meetings webpage. The page details project meetings scheduled throughout the state and is searchable by city, county, route and project number. It also includes maps and other documents available at the meetings-everything you need to stay informed about upcoming projects in your area.
