August 1, 2009

On July 27, 2009, the NEXTRANS Center's 2009 Summer Undergraduate Interns delivered formal presentations at Purdue University's Discovery Park. This event was an opportunity for interns to share their research accomplishments with faculty, graduate mentors, and other undergraduate students from all three institutions, as well as the NEXTRANS Center staff, and Discovery Park Associate Director Pankaj Sharma. In addition to gaining insight about a variety of transportation topics, interns received encouragement and guidance in considering graduate-level education and transportation-related careers.  This year's participants were:
