Summer Enrichment Program


In partnership with all seven high schools in the Birmingham City School System, the University of Alabama at Birmingham (the Sustainable Smart Cities Research Center; and the Minority Health & Health Disparities Research Center) is sponsoring a summer enrichment program to increase the number of competent, well trained minority researchers and engineers working on transportation related issues.
 
The program seeks to provide intensive learning opportunities for rising high school seniors in civil engineering research and to increase enrollment in engineering school and transportation engineering related career choices.
 
The scholars selected for the National Center for Transportation System Productivity and Management (NCTSPM) Summer Enrichment Program are exposed to experts in civil engineering and transportation related topics, learn about engineering career options, take classes in scientific writing, work on research projects under the leadership of a faculty mentor, and develop a comprehensive plan to achieve their goals.

The goal of the NCTSPM Summer Enrichment Program is to increase the number of competent, well trained minority engineers, researchers, and transportation professionals working on transportation issues of importance to our region and the nation.

10-15 students attend the 4 week program at UAB campus and are mentored by School of Engineering faculty.
