SWUTC Education Overview
Transportation education is an essential element in the overall process of developing a workforce with the skills and leadership qualities to guide the transportation industry of the future. The SWUTC has invested heavily in the development of human capital creating a “pipeline” process which takes in students at secondary school levels, adds high school and baccalaureate programs and culminates in graduate specialties in transportation science and engineering.
The SWUTC supports undergraduate and graduate programs that are integrated into established degree-granting university departments at Texas A&M University and the University of Texas at Austin. Additionally, SWUTC supports the academic enrichment of a well-developed graduate transportation studies program at Texas Southern University. The SWUTC seeks to enhance these programs by strengthening the multidisciplinary qualities of a body of transportation science that will prepare today’s students for leadership in the emerging information-rich economy.
