Olmsted
National Summer Transportation Institute 2016

The University at Buffalo School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) will host our 4th National Summer Transportation Institute (NSTI), a transportation engineering summer camp, from July 11-15 2016 on UB north campus. The goal of this summer camp is to attract more high school students to pursue their career in the field of transportation. Since the summer camp is funded by the Federal Highway Administration, it is completely free to students who are accepted (i.e., the camp will provide lunches, activities and field trip transportation). Our previous NSTI camps have successfully recruited a total of 80 students and each year they have responded well to our transportation related programs. This year, we plan to recruit 30 new students and the deadline for the application is 5:00pm on June 13.

Applications are due at 5:00 p.m. on Monday, June 13, 2016
