To enter a Traffic Engineering job in New Zealand, we recommend that you first complete a Bachelor of Engineering Technology, specialising in Civil Engineering – Roading and Transportation, or a Bachelor of Engineering, specialising in Traffic Planning and Highway Design.

The daily job responsibilities of a Traffic Engineer can include the following:

  • Planning transportation networks, such as roads, highways and streets
  • Using computer simulation programs to explore potential impact of proposed traffic development projects
