Transportation Program

Rail Transportation Program

The Rail Transportation Program (RTP) was officially established in 2007 within the Michigan Tech Transportation Institute. The multi-disciplinary program uses three integrated activity groups to increase rail exposure and to engage students, faculty and industry partners in rail transportation—Projects and Research, Education, and Events and Extracurricular Activities.
“The vision of Rail Transportation Program is to expand its service to the rail industry by offering an interdisciplinary program in railroad engineering and urban rail transit that will provide opportunities for our students and faculty to participate in the development and operation of rail transportation for the 21st Century.”

Michigan's Local Technical Assistance Program

The Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP) serves as the Technology Transfer (T2) effort of the Federal Highway Administration’s Office of Professional Development. The LTAP network consists of 57 T2 Centers and serves state, county and local highway and transportation personnel.

The LTAP mission is to bridge the gap between research and practice by conducting training sessions and demonstrations and by serving as a clearinghouse for information related to state-of-the-art technology in the construction and maintenance of roads and bridges.

LTAP is funded by FHWA, with matching funds from State governments, universities, state highway agencies and other organizations.

Michigan Tech Tribal Technical Assistance Program

The Tribal Technical Assistance Program (TTAP) is part of a nationwide effort sponsored by the Federal Highway Administration and the Bureau of Indian Affairs. TTAP explores technology transfer initiatives focusing on technology and information on tribal roads and bridges, tourism, and recreation, and related economic development to tribal transportation and planning personnel. TTAP provides technology transfer through training workshops, a quarterly newsletter, and the operation of free publication and videotape training libraries.
