Every day, RATP engineers are imagining the urban mobility of tomorrow. If you are passionate about transport systems engineering, we have a large number of projects that will interest you.

Careers in transport systems engineering call for the full range of skills needed for managing a project, from contracting authority (MOA) to prime contractor (MOE). They play a key role in the design of transport equipment: metros, buses, tramways, trains and their motorisation, etc. Our engineers intervene in all phases of transport projects:

As part of an innovative and dynamic team, your mission is to:

  • Conduct upstream studies: prospective research, economic studies, network modelling...
  • Conduct technical studies: design of equipment and facilities, safety documents...
  • Ensure project realisation and monitoring
  • Guarantee the certification and start-up of systems
  • Ensure a technology watch to integrate the latest innovations
  • Carry out R&D to optimise the performance of the network and its equipment.

The high performance realised by our transport systems and our global expertise in urban mobility are key strengths when competing with the giants in the urban transport sector.
