NSTI is a two-week non-residential summer program that is offered to rising sophomores in high school. The focus of the program is to encourage students to consider Transportation, Engineering or other STEM fields as their career choice. The NSTI participants have class and lab instruction presented to them in a Module format with emphasis on Engineering concepts and enhancing mathematical skills. To further motivate the students, fields trips are incorporated in the NSTI schedule, so that the students can see what engineers do. Students are selected for the program based on GPA, letter of interest, and a letter of recommendation from a teacher. NSTI will be offered July 15-26, 2019(tentatively).
