Transportation & Urban Infrastructure Studies (TUIS)

Track in Rail Transportation Engineering


The Transportation and Urban Infrastructure Studies program provides scholarships to students interested in pursuing a career in rail transportation engineering. For the next four years, we will award 10 scholarships per year to undergrad students, averaging $20,000 per award to new first-year and transfer students, and 5 scholarships per year to graduate students, averaging $15,000 starting the 2023-2024 academic year.

This program is in partnership with the University of Delaware and is supported by the grant, "Development and Implementation of HBCU Based Railroad Engineering Program for Underrepresented Communities," from the Consolidated Rail Infrastructure & Safety Improvements (CRISI) grant program by the Federal Rail Administration (FRA).
