TXST National Summer Transportation Institute

The Texas State University (TXST) organizes the National Summer Transportation Institute (NSTI) program to introduce the broad field of transportation to a diverse group of motivated high school students. These students are introduced to concepts associated with the application of high technology to transportation engineering and transportation infrastructure. The two-week residential program includes well-designed daytime and evening activities for the students to have a real experience of college life. The curriculum focuses on a different mode (highway, air, rail, water, or transit) of transportation with an associated theme each day. Contents and activities related to planning, design, construction, operations, and management of transportation systems and infrastructure are considered. Throughout the program, related transportation careers are highlighted. The Coastal Research and Education Actions for Transportation Equity (CREATE) Center, TXST, and the NSTI collaborates with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), and Austin Capital Metro to provide guest lectures, field trips, laboratory tours, and/or investigations.
