This paper discusses the implications for transportation engineering of foreign-born engineers in the United States from the transportation industry perspective. The railroad industry is used as an example, as the author has a 36-year involvement in it. His experience with foreign-born and foreign-trained engineers has been a positive one in all of the categories involved, which includes research, engineering departments of individual railroad companies, and field supervision.
