K-12 Programs

As urban and rural areas continue to see traffic growth, the need for more transportation engineers is also growing. The profession is losing over half of the state agency transportation engineers and many more local agency professionals as baby boomers retire. In response to this shortage, the UFTI along with its USDOT Regional grant-funded University Transportation Center (UTC), have teamed up to work harder at recruiting more students to the field, by creating K-12 programs to introduce the younger generation to engineering.
