UMassSafe collaborates with CEE and ITE to Pilot Transportation Engineering Mentoring Program


UMassSafe, in conjunction with the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) and the student chapter of the Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE), has developed the Transportation Engineering Applied Academics Mentoring (TEAAM) program. The 2006-2007 academic year will serve as the pilot year for this program which has four components: Graduate Mentoring, Undergraduate Mentoring, Career/Skills Development Seminars, and Drop-In Hours. The TEAAM program is aimed at helping students identify how to meet their academic requirements while simultaneously using the resources available to them to understand career options and develop skills that will make them strong candidates for employment in transportation engineering. The TEAAM program received a grant from the UMass Graduate School for its implementation.
