Michigan Tech’s Rail Transportation Program was mentioned by Progressive Railroading in a story about the Federal Railroad Administration-sponsored Tracks to the Future rail transportation and engineering summer youth program. The weeklong summer sessions, which began at Michigan Tech, have expanded to five other universities across the U.S.
As part of the Summer Youth Program at Michigan Tech, the Pathways Programs offer deep dives into particular fields of interest.
