  •         Bicycle signal timing and detection
  •         Adaptive signal control
  •         Traveler information system
  •         Communications network design, operations and maintenance

When considering this position, it is also important to consider the organization and people you will join.  The management team within the Department and Division are committed to working with you to succeed.  You will find a culture that is supportive in your career development, open to ideas and striving to meet and exceed the expectations of the traveling public.  Opportunities exist to participate in professional organizations (e.g., Institute of Transportation Engineers) and in continuing education programs.
