Developing transportation professionals with a global understanding of MDOT's mission and practices.

The Engineer Development Program (EDP) is a rotational program that provides new engineers experience in multiple work areas while being assigned a senior-level mentor. At the conclusion of the EDP, employees are placed into production roles in alignment with their career interests and the department's needs. 

Typical assignments include road and bridge design, construction, traffic safety, operations, maintenance, geotechnical, materials, and surveys. Additional opportunities in rail, aeronautics, and environmental can be worked into the program with the help of the EDP mentor.
