Kyle Mulligan

Chief Engineer


Canadian Pacific Railway

Kyle Mulligan is the Chief Engineer at Canadian Pacific, where he is responsible for overseeing CP’s hydrogen locomotive, advanced analytics, standards, wayside detection, train dynamics and marshalling, and incident investigation programs. More simply, Kyle uses data and technology to help ensure CP continues to operate the safest Class 1 railroad in North America for 15 years running.

As a leader at CP, Kyle strives to deliver results on time and on budget, while also mentoring those around him. He is trained and qualified as a locomotive engineer, conductor, freight car inspector, welder, and leadership coach. He has used his first-hand experience to further understand impacts of the systems that he designs for operations in the field including never before seen industry technologies such as, but not limited to: broken rail detection in dark territory, predictive acoustic bearing failure technology, cracked wheel detectors and top of rail surface scanning systems. Kyle’s achievements are supported by over 20 international conference and journal publications and several accolades.

Kyle holds a doctorate (PhD) in mechanical engineering from the University of Sherbrooke in addition to degrees in computer systems, electrical, and biomedical engineering. He is a two-time recipient of CP’s CEO Award for Excellence, was named as one of Railway Age’s 2018 top 10 under 40, CP’s 2019 Railroad of the Year, and has received back-to-back 2018/2019 Railway Association of Canada safety awards. He is an active member of the community as a mentor with FIRST, a group that inspires young people’s interest and participation in science and technology. Kyle and his wife Sandie also work together to help integrate refuge families into Canadian life through mentorship and work with veterans by hosting nutrition and cooking classes such that they can be prepared to eat healthily in life outside of the military.
