Steffanie graduated in May 2010 with a BS in Civil Engineering. She has been working with CSX Transportation since May of 2011.
“This job is my first experience in the rail industry. I learned of this position at the MTU 2011 Spring Career Fair. I was looking for a job related to bridges, but I didn’t want to work for a consulting firm. I didn’t realize I could pursue a career in bridges while working in the rail industry until I spoke with the CSX representative at MTU.
I am currently training to be either a Bridge Inspector, Bridge Manager, or Construction Engineer at CSX. I have been learning about the Engineering, Transportation, and Mechanical departments at CSX through classroom instruction and on the job training. I have also spent some time inspecting bridges and interacting with bridge construction crews at various job sites. I travel a lot in order to see different parts of our railroad system, and have been to 10 different states since I started. The best part about this job is that every day is different, there is always work to be done, and I am hardly ever in an office.”
