AECOM's growth helps the company better solve complex issues in the robust Texas infrastructure market.

“We are stepping into a new decade driven by digital platforms, automated vehicles, hyperloops and high-speed rail. What a thrilling time to be in the field," she says.

Nandita describes engineers as "designers" who solve technical problems when "lifer throws us our biggest challenges". She also associates the industry with "creativity, innovation, continuous learning, the ability to shape infrastructure solutions and to build better communities."
