Graduate Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) Engineer - Infrastructure

Job description

At Arup, we design and deliver ground-breaking icons through our work in infrastructure, building design and specialist technical services. Independent in ownership and spirit, we're a global firm of designers, planners, engineers, consultants and technical experts who use our skills to make a positive difference in the world.

Our smarter mobility experts use clear thinking and intelligent technology to make travelling a seamless and efficient experience. By considering entire journeys and thinking across modes of transport, we make transport systems around the world safer, more efficient and more sustainable to use and operate.

From the very beginning of each project, our specialists work with operators and planners to help define a vision for their transport operations and make sure this can become a reality. Focussed on improving mobility for users, we propose appropriate intelligent transport systems (ITS) as part of an integrated transport solution. Our technical advice, planning, design and management creates complete solutions for towns and cities as well as bespoke improvements to site-specific issues.

Our approach to ITS is driven by operational needs and user requirements. For example, we design traffic signal and car parking guidance systems to keep traffic moving in towns and in car parks. On the highways, our motorway control systems enable hard shoulder running and variable speed limits to increase capacity safely.

We create electronic payment solutions that protect revenue and make tolling, road pricing and smart public transport ticketing run smoothly.We also find smarter ways to help public transport passengers and motorists choose the most efficient journeys by supplying the information they need – before they leave home and on the move.

Our goal is to create environments where more people can enjoy integrated, seamless journeys. To achieve this, we work with governments and seek to influence policy and strategy on the smart application of intelligent transport systems.

We have been delivering intelligent transport systems for over 30 years on the global stage through either bespoke single-point solutions or through larger integrated transport projects. Our services are provided through the whole project lifecycle of concept and feasibility, planning and design, testing and commissioning and operation and maintenance.

As one of the world's leading building and infrastructure design consultancies, we offer clients the innovation and technical know-how to continually deliver their projects on schedule and on budget, but without compromise.
