Welcome to the Transportation Consortium of South Central States
The theme of the Center is “Solving Emerging Transportation Resiliency, Sustainability and Economic Challenges through the Use of Innovative Materials and Construction Methods: From Research to Implementation.” The Center’s Mission is to support all phases of research, technology transfer, workforce development, and outreach activities of emerging technologies that can solve transportation challenges in Region 6. While the focus of Trans-SET will be on FAST research priority four (Improving the durability and extending the life of transportation infrastructure), the Center will address all transportation challenges throughout Region 6 in regards to transportation research, education, workforce development, and technology transfer.
The combined Region 6 UTC team represents a collaborative partnership between nine major institutions and two community colleges. This partnership will combine the distinct characteristics and strengths of each institution to deliver a Center with unique capabilities to tackle regional transportation challenges.
