Our mission directly supports the integration of research with education. Our students come from a variety of math, science and engineering backgrounds with skills in computer science, mechanical engineering, and electrical and systems. In addition to following our carefully designed transportation curriculum, both undergraduate and graduate students are involved in research activities/tasks and assist faculty in our transportation laboratories. For proper analytical training, the students have to take a list of courses. Additional extra-curricular and professional activities are performed in a collaborative and friendly academic environment. Significant interactions with different student bodies and research groups from different disciplines are provided. Through visits and seminars, the GWTP researchers are connected to high school and kindergarten students/teachers in the area. Additional opportunities to meet officials and professionals from different public and private agencies are secured.
