Rail Transportation Advisory Board (RTAB)

In 2013 the Rail Transportation Program established the Rail Transportation Advisory Board. The first meeting was held on Feb 17, 2014. The board consists of experts who represent a broad cross section of the rail industry and its stakeholders. Several members are Michigan Tech alumni. The RTAB will provide guidance in the following areas:

  • Improving   student   recruitment,   from   both   an industry and a student perspective
  • Consistent   and   active   participation   from   the industry in project and research opportunities as well as in engagement of students
  • Visibility  of  the  RTP  as  a  leading  rail  university, capable of providing both students and research as future assets to the industry
  • Consistent and sustained funding for the RTP
