Did you know that engineers have almost as long an ethical code as doctors and attorneys? And all professional engineers must revisit ethics every year, before renewing their PE licenses. This seminar will address the common ethics pitfalls that face our graduate students, both in school and after graduation. We’ll discuss data collection & description, data & results fabrication, paraphrasing vs. plagiarism, author responsibility, PE licensing, & ethics in teaching. We’ll talk about how this applies to your current role, as students, and how it carries over into professional careers. We’ll also address your questions, thoughts, & ideas.


Friday, April 14, 4 – 5 pm in ECJ 6.406
*Snacks will be provided*
Please RSVP to or 512‐232‐4252

    Each summer D-STOP, in coordination with another USDOT Tier 1 research unit, the Center for Highway Pavement Preservation, hosts an 11-week summer internship for engineering undergraduates interested in transportation. The University Transportation Center (UTC) Undergraduate Internship (UI) provides interns with unique insight into transportation education and helps prepare them for a possible career in the field. The interns will attend a colloquium series (the Summer Symposium Series) designed to introduce them to different aspects of the transportation field. Held on Thursdays throughout the summer, these symposium sessions are not just for the interns—they are open to everyone in the research community.
