Summer Transportation Institute

The purpose of the Institute is to create awareness and arouse an interest in high school students regarding the opportunities and careers available within the transportation industry.  The program is a structured learning environment for 20 participants in a five week non-residential program funded by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT).

Participants are selected based on their academic achievement, expression of interest in transportation as a possible career, and written recommendation from the high school counselor or teacher.

Transportation education is increasingly interdisciplinary in its orientation; therefore, students will be exposed to theoretical and practical aspects of all forms of transportation-related disciplines such as economics, marketing, computer science, public policy and public administration.

Summer 2017 information coming soon!
