In the course of time, these areas of expertise were complemented by further faculties as transport, constructive engineering, mining, hydraulic engineering, flood control & protection and electrical engineering.
Diversity was a hallmark from the very beginning, and eventually led our enterprise to operating worldwide; projects were dealt with in the single regions initially, but soon further sites were established to work globally.

After successful train projects in Algeria, traffic planning and management emerged quickly as a branch of its own in 1979.
