Students will visit 13 public and private agencies for half-day seminars to learn all about the transportation industry. The theme of the Academy this year is Innovation and participating agencies will highlight how they are innovating to meet future challenges and demands within the transportation industry. Participants will learn about management, finance, operations and planning, as well as engineering, construction management and public involvement principals.
