Workforce Development

Overview

Tran-SET has a firm initiative to advance the transportation workforce and to develop its next generation of leaders by: (1) attracting and supporting diverse, promising individuals to the transportation field through internships/research assistantships, (2) providing experiences through education and cutting-edge research to more properly prepare these individuals as they enter the workforce, and (3) incorporating and disseminating knowledge generated from sponsored research into educational and training products/activities.

Each sponsored research project contains a six-month "implementation phase" -- dedicated to education, technology transfer, and workforce development products and activities.

Objectives

  • Ensure research outcomes are disseminated through educational and workforce development activities by supporting the development of seminars, workshops, and training courses.
  • Develop the next generation of leaders and graduate students of the transportation field by supporting mentoring, networking, training, and other development activities.
