The Michigan Tech Rail Transportation Program was recently awarded an Education Grant by the National Railroad Construction and Maintenance Association (NRC)! The grant will be used to improve our outreach to K-12 students, to add and improve the assets we use to teach rail courses here at Tech, and to support our Rail and Intermodal Transportation Summer Youth program. We are looking forward to working with the NRC, and to building a stronger relationship, leading to improved career opportunities for our students. We will also look to provide opportunities for NRC members to visit the campus and talk directly with our students. This promises to be a win-win opportunity for all!
