University Transportation Centers Program

NIATT has been a proud member of the University Transportation Centers Program sinceUniversity Transportation Centers 1991. Our theme is advanced technology for sustainable transportation.

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
  • Prepare our students to be leaders in the design, deployment, and operation of our nationís complex transportation systems.

During the past eight years, we used the UTC investment of $6.2 million to develop a comprehensive program of education, research, and technology transfer. UTC funds are used to support two of NIATT's research centers.

Center for Traffic Operations and Control

The mission of the Center for Traffic Operations and Control is to develop, test, and evaluate technology products supporting advanced traffic control systems.

Center for Clean Vehicle Technology

The mission for the Center for Clean Vehicle Technology is to develop, test, and evaluate technologies that reduce the impact vehicles have on the environment. This includes technologies for the new generation of vehicles as well as for recreational vehicles to be used in environmentally sensitive areas such as national parks.
