Residential Programs

Summer Transportation Institute

Designing bridges, evaluating traffic patterns, and building solar cars are just a few of the projects high school juniors and seniors work on in the Summer Transportation Institute (STI).

STI builds awareness about the career opportunities in the transportation field, many of which are related to engineering.  About 20 students from around the state attend the free, three-week, residential program, which includes research, classes, and field trips to transportation sites around Albuquerque. About half of the students that participate in STI enroll at UNM.
