RTI’s efforts in higher education focus on creating and supporting a multidisciplinary program through undergraduate, graduate and continuing education coursework and experiential learning. This continuum of education reinforces the transportation theme of the Institute and represents the uniqueness of Appalachia. RTI also seeks to increase the number of students, faculty and staff who are substantially involved in higher-level and professional education programs at Marshall University.

Faculty from programs in Business, Engineering, Environmental Science, Geography, Geology and Physics have assisted in the additions to the transportation college course baseline in addition to contributing to a successful continuing education program that reaches more than 1000 transportation professionals each year.

New transportation-related courses, minors and degree programs have been created at Mountwest Community and Technical College, Marshall University and Marshall University Graduate College (MUGC). Instructional content is geared to prepare students to support transportation systems in Appalachia and the United States. Research associates, principal investigators and staff have played key roles in the creation of several new courses, degree emphasis and degree programs shown below.
