FACULTY LEAD RESEARCH AND PROJECTS

RTP has received over $1 million through externally funded research projects to date. We partner with other university programs and departments, with outside agencies and sources like MDOT and USDOT, other universities, and with industry partnerships like CN and Union Pacific.

 

STUDENT PROJECTS

Student projects are an important component of our programming. Senior Design as well as Student Enterprise projects engage students in “real life situations,” providing experiences through hands-on education and industry sponsored projects.

 
Sponsoring real-life student projects and/or faculty research provided visibility, networking, and positive outcomes for industry partners. We thank our project sponsors and partners. Interested in participating? Contact us to find out how!
