Integrated Graduate Education & Research Traineeships (IGERT): Transportation Technology & Policy Final Grant Report

The UC Davis IGERT (Integrated Graduate Education & Research Traineeships) grant for Transportation Technology and Policy (TTP) began October 1, 1998 and officially concluded September 30, 2005. The TTP theme of the grant was shared by the degree-granting program of the same name, and focused on the need to integrate the often-segregated policy and technology sides of transportation, so as to better prepare students to address today's and tomorrow's complex transportation-related challenges. The budget totaled $2.66 million, which directly funded 43 students in eight different degree programs (including research, teaching, international internships, and travel activities), 14 distinguished speakers, two graduate research conferences, a variety of recruiting practices, laboratory and computing equipment, project administration, and this evaluation. More than 2/3 of the budget directly funded students. In less than 15 years, the Institute of Transportation Studies at UC Davis (ITS-Davis, established in 1991) has vaulted into the top ranks of university transportation centers. IGERT has had everything to do with this meteoric rise: the IGERT grant was active for nearly half of that period, and was seminal in supporting numerous and diverse research and educational activities of the Institute.
