One of the goals of the National Center for Sustainable Transportation is to ensure that current and future transportation professionals are equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills to design, operate, and maintain sustainable transportation systems. The goal of the sustainable transportation education program is to develop materials that will produce graduates (and train practitioners) capable of using and improving analytical tools for assessing sustainable transportation systems.
The National Center for Sustainable Transportation has hosted students of multiple grade levels. Junior high and high school students have toured UC Davis to provide an overview of the Institute of Transportation Studies, tour electric vehicles and charging stations, and engage in small group discussions with NCST researchers, faculty, staff, and grad students. Visiting students had the opportunity to discuss and explore potential future opportunities in research and educational paths.
