University Transportation Center


The mission of every university is to instill knowledge and provide a rigorous process that insures that the graduates of our programs are intelligent, trained and prepared for employment in today's economy. The faculty associated with the Transportation Center have crafted a curriculum in each of the attending disciplines that guarantees that students matriculating from those disciplines meet the mission stated above. To demonstrate this we list the titles of the masters theses and doctoral dissertations of those students supported by the Center with graduate assistantships.

In addition, the CSU-UTC seeks to put the benefits of its research in the hands of those who can use it best. To pass on this knowledge, Center staff continually work to publish research results in peer reviewed journals, trade publications, and other professional media.

Publications are separated into several categories: peer-reviewed articles/reports, conference papers, ther professional publications and student theses and dissertations.
