  • A graduate certificate in Transportation Planning and Policy
  • The Pathways to College Program, which introduces DFW-area high school students to various career paths in the STEM disciplines
  • Robust and active student organizations, including the CTEDD Student Council, the Women’s Transportation Seminar, the Institute of Transportation Engineers, Out in STEM, and many others at all five CTEDD-affiliated universities
  • Scholarships and travel grants to CTEDD-affiliated students
  • Research webinars designed to showcase the latest findings to a national audience of transportation practitioners
