Montana State University Summer Transportation Institute


A group of students huddled around a computer screen who are smiling and looking at the camera.

Our nation's transportation system impacts each of us every day. We need to develop the next generation of engineers, scientists, planners, designers, and innovators, so that we can tackle the transportation problems of today and make a difference tomorrow.

The Summer Transportation Institute (STI) at Montana State University is an innovative summer program for high school students that's guaranteed to spark their interest in transportation through creative problem-solving and hands-on activities. Participants will have the opportunity to experience college life, explore career options, and improve their academic performance. Students gain skills in applied science and math, work together with their peers on design teams, and meet university and professional staff in the transportation field.

The STI provides a stimulating introduction to all modes of transportation through professional presentations, field trips, and hands-on activities.
