UTC Mission: to advance transportation expertise and technology through education



The New England Center seeks to engage K-12 students and teachers in transportation projects or curriculum to develop the next generation transportation professional. 

K-12 Outreach

The Universities of Maine and Massachusetts sponsor two Transportation Institutes for middle school and high school students. The Institutes are co-sponsored by the Maine Department of Transportation, Massachusetts Department of Transportation and the Federal Highway Administration. They are designed to introduce students at an early age to jobs and careers available in the region’s transportation industry.
