TAMU – Undergraduate Transportation Scholars Program

This program was established to promote interest in transportation and materials research among upper-level undergraduate engineering students.  And to provide students with a research/work experience that will help them get a head start on their careers.  In this 10-week program, up to eight students from across the U.S. spend a portion of the summer working on a research project and learning about the transportation research program at Texas A&M University and the Texas Transportation Institute.   The individual students are assigned to a mentor, who will assist the student in developing a research proposal, conducting a small transportation engineering research project, presenting findings to peers, and preparing a paper in journal format.  A stipend is provided to students who participate in the program.
