Education is at the core of what we do, and our students directly contribute to research at every step.
Our educational mission is to build a transportation workforce that is able to use multidisciplinary approaches to address multi-dimensional complex problems, through an emphasis on real-time data analysis and processing, the study of the dynamics underlying human activity-travel decision-making, and training on the effective use of information.
D-STOP undergraduate and graduate students will be given the unique opportunity to take part in cross-cutting research that is both state of the art and vital to transportation practitioners. Funding through D-STOP will allow these young researchers the opportunity to not only conduct fundamental research, but also to transfer their knowledge to practice via workshops, symposia, and conferences. Such experiences are critical for leadership development, teaching skills beyond those offered in the classroom or in a research laboratory.
