全国平均工资:每小时$ 32.17


主要职责:机车工程师也称为“火车工程师”,他们操作柴油电动和电池驱动的火车来运送旅客和货物。他们操作控制装置,例如节气门和刹车片,并监控气压,速度和电池电压。他们还与其他铁路工人合作,更新火车检查日志,监控机车设备,并确保火车按计划进行。


要求:个人必须持有高中文凭或同等学历才能在铁路上工作。他们可能会在符合机车工程职位资格之前从入门级职位开始,例如刹车员或指挥。在美国,大多数州都要求有抱负的机车工程师完成联邦火车管理局批准的认证培训计划,然后才能从事机车工程师的工作。他们还必须通过听力和视力测验,技能表现测验和知识测验。



Locomotive engineer

National average salary: $32.17 per hour

Primary duties: Also known as "train engineers," locomotive engineers operate diesel-electric and battery-powered trains that transport passengers and cargo. They operate controls—such as throttle and airbrakes—and monitor air pressure, speed and battery voltage. They also collaborate with other railroad workers, update train inspection logs, monitor locomotive equipment and make sure that the train remains on schedule.

Requirements: Individuals must hold a high school diploma or its equivalent to work in a railroad. They may start out in an entry-level position—such as brakeman or conductor—before they can qualify for a locomotive engineering position. In the U.S., most states require aspiring locomotive engineers to complete a certification training program approved by the Federal Railroad Administration before they can work as a locomotive engineer. They must also pass a hearing and vision test, a skill performance test and a knowledge test.
