Roads don’t just appear by magic. Neither do sidewalks or traffic lights. These things are carefully planned by engineers.

An engineer is a person who designs and builds things. YUNG KOPROWSKI (pictured) is an engineer. She works in transportation. She plans new ways for people to get around.

She fixes old transportation systems, too. “Transportation engineers make life safer and easier,” Koprowski told TFK. “We help people travel to the places where they live, work, and play.”
