Railway Engineer

I was recently reading the May/June 2022 issue of “The Science Teacher” a publication of the National Science Teaching Association.  In this issue, I read the “Career of the Month” column, written by Luba Vangelova.  She wrote an article entitled, “Railway Engineer.”

Railway engineers design and maintain rail systems used by trains of various types, ranging from long-distance cargo trains to metropolitan light-rail and subway trains.  Cassie Gouger is senior director of design within Union Pacific Railroad’s engineering department, in Omaha, Nebraska.  She shares her career highlights, career path, and her advice for students.
