Transportation Research Internship Program (TRIP)
The main goal of the program is to provide undergraduates an exciting opportunity to learn about transportation engineering and to participate in cutting-edge research projects along with STRIDE faculty and graduate students. Students can pursue their internship at any one of the eight universities within the STRIDE consortium.
The experience is valuable for students interested in pursuing advanced studies and/or a career in the field of transportation engineering. Students from other discipline areas such as mathematics and urban planning, as well as other engineering majors (industrial and systems engineering, computer science engineering, environmental engineering, materials engineering, mechanical engineering) are welcome to apply, as the skills gained in these areas play an important role in transportation.
The paid internship runs from May to the end of July, each year, and students are expected to work 20-30 hours per week. Interns will contribute extensively to one or more on-going projects, which are in a variety of areas, such as traffic operations, highway capacity and quality of service, safety, travel modeling, network optimization, and transportation systems planning. Each intern will be supervised by a faculty advisor and will work in close collaboration with master’s and doctoral students in the Transportation Engineering Program at participating STRIDE universities.
