Students attending this year's Transportation Research Forum in Tampa have a unique opportunity to move their careers onto the fast track. They will expand their professional networks and learning strategies to achieve success in their graduate studies, job searches and careers, and increase their awareness of issues, opportunities and challenges facing transportation.
The TRF is hosting its first-ever Graduate Student Symposium on March 14 - the day before the Annual Forum begins. The event will feature leaders from academia, government, and industry. Students will guide the conversation on topics of graduate study, paper publication, and career planning. A limited number of seats are available at the symposium. Students attending the Annual Forum may register for the symposium at no cost. Students who do not register for the Annual Forum may register for $40.
The graduate student symposium is sponsored by the Freight Policy Transportation Institute at Washington State University
