Our mission is to

  • Develop engineering solutions (knowledge and technology) to transportation problems for the state of Idaho, the Pacific Northwest, and the United States, and to
  • Prepare our students to be leaders in the design, deployment, and operation of our nationís complex transportation systems.

UTC Program

NIATT has been a proud member of the University Transportation Centers Program since 1991.

During the past three years, we used the UTC investment of $7 million to develop a comprehensive program of education, research, and technology transfer.

We were one of ten Tier I UTCs to be funded from the 2012 competition. Our consortium is TranLIVE.


Prospective undergraduate and graduate students and others welcome to visit. If you would like to schedule a meeting with a faculty researcher, send us an email.

Where we are . . .

We are located in the Engineering Physics Building on the campus of theEngineering Physics Building University of Idaho in the city of Moscow, in Idaho's panhandle.


Forested mountains are nearby; the air is clean and water is abundant. The area is surrounded by rolling hills of wheat and lentils and we get enough snowfall to provide skiing nearby. Annual rainfall is 27 inches. And it's hardly ever humid!A view of campus with Moscow Mountain in the background.

Spokane, Washington, a city of some 300,000 people, is 87 miles northwest of Moscow. Seattle, Washington, and Boise, Idaho, are 6 to 7 hours away by car. The  Spokane International Airport and the Lewiston Airport both serve our area.
