Engineering Technology

Our Continued Focus 

The Oregon Department of Transportation has been involved in the automation of its engineering efforts for decades and there is no end in sight.

ODOT transitioned from using mechanical survey instruments; performing hand calculations, designing on paper, and hand drafting to the use of electronic survey instruments, personal computers and software for design and drafting.

This dedication to the advancement of our processes continues today through the investigation, analysis and implementation of key engineering-related advancements.
