Anne O’Neil, P.E., CSEP - Chief Systems Engineer for New York City Transit (NYCT)
Monday, November 19 – 3:30 - 5:00 PM - Babbio 122

Anne O’Neil is responsible for systems engineering for NYCT’s $2B-a-year capital improvement program.  The magnitude of the challenge is staggering.  On an average weekday, NYCT’s 45,000 employees serve nearly 7.5 million passengers, utilizing more than 6000 subway cars and 4000 buses in the process. The capital projects extend across operational control centers, maintenance depot facilities, subway yards, passenger stations, communications, signaling and security systems, and countless right-of-way equipment facilities, like pump rooms, emergency ventilation plants, and substations.

Anne has a BSEE from Tufts University and joined NYCT in 2002 as Principal Communications Engineer for the design of subway expansion projects, including the new 8.5mile, 16 passenger-station Second Avenue subway line that will serve the East side of Manhattan.  She began her career as a control systems engineer in the power industry. 

As a Board member of the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) and co-chair of the organization’s Transportation Working Group, Anne is a champion for systems engineering within the transportation industry, raising SE awareness through speaking engagements at industry conferences and founding an SE Committee for the American Public Transit Association (APTA), which she chaired until June 2012.  In 2009, Anne was profiled by Money magazine, boosting the recognition of the value of systems engineers across many sectors. In recognition of her extensive outreach efforts within the SE community and across the transportation industry, she was awarded the 2011 INCOSE Founders Award.
