Centers & Institutes

NUTC’s effective role in generating awareness and educating the Northwestern community on transportation-related topics with resulting reports, ongoing projects, and current research is evidenced by a growing list of synergistic centers and institutes.

 

These programs and centers provide enhanced opportunities for students and faculty to learn about and engage in a wide range of subjects affecting the complex and diverse transportation industry. The activities they generate are open to the campus community, and generally to the transportation community beyond Northwestern, contributing to a rich intellectual and professional experience in virtually all aspects of transportation systems research and education.
