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.”
