Outreach and Education

Research performed by the National Concrete Pavement Technology Center on performance-engineered concrete paving mixtures brought newer concrete pavement technologies to state agencies.

The Iowa Public Works Service Bureau provides resources for public works staff from cities of all sizes to connect and improve work efficiency, learn new techniques, and maximize available resources.

Workshops offered by the Iowa Local Technical Assistance Program bring the latest in transportation technology to Iowa’s public works and county employees.

Transferring new ideas and technologies to the transportation community

The Institute for Transportation shares its expertise and new knowledge far and wide. InTrans is focused on implementing innovative and novel technologies to enhance the transportation system and to improve lives. Institute faculty offer many transportation-related research opportunities for Iowa State University students pursuing PhD and master’s degrees. Annual K-12 programs introduce the world of transportation and engineering to students and provide professional development for STEM educators. And workforce development opportunities—including workshops, conferences, webinars, and other forms of training—improve the skills and knowledge of transportation workers.
