UT-Austin – Undergraduate Summer Internship in Transportation (USIT)

This 11-week program provides students with a unique insight into transportation engineering education and a possible career in the field.  Students participating in this program will gain firsthand experience in conducting transportation studies and to actively participate in transportation research with graduate students under the supervision of the Transportation faculty.  Over the course of the 11-week program there will be weekly lectures on a wide range of topics on transportation engineering given by distinguished academics and practicing engineers.  This internship is intended to be a demanding as well as rewarding experience.  Interns will be assigned to one, in some cases two, ongoing transportation engineering research projects and are expected to work a minimum of 20 hours per week on that project.  Interns who are not current UT students will each receive a Fellowship of $3,600 over the 11-week period of the program.  UT student interns will each received a Fellowship of $2,700.  See USIT program for more information and application forms.
