Undergraduate Programs and Opportunities
Women’s Transportation Seminars Student Travel Award Essay Contest
In 2010, CAIT ran the first WTS Essay Contest and plans to continue the tradition through 2014. The prize is a travel award to attend the WTS Annual Meeting, an extraordinary opportunity to meet and network with women working in transportation and experience what awaits you in the professional world.
The CAIT UTC consortium hosted its third WTS essay competition in 2013. The WTS essay competition is open to all female undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in a transportation-related engineering, policy, or planning degree program. Contestants are chosen based on an essay, which is reviewed by a panel of faculty and communications experts whom evaluate submissions and choose the winners.
You can read more about the 2013 event and essay competition at cait.rutgers.edu/cait/wts-contest-2013.

CAIT-NJDOT Undergraduate Internship Program
The CAIT-NJDOT summer internship exposes students to the scores of areas NJDOT is involved in—construction, traffic engineering, structural engineering, intermodal transportation, freight, and more. The internship provides invaluable practical professional experience, gives students the opportunity work on solving real-world problems, broadens their worldview, and gives them a taste of what lies ahead.
