Education Initiatives

​​ The N.C. Department of Transportation's Education Initiatives Program is focused on capturing the interests of students in activities and programs that focus heavily on science, technology, engineering and mathematics – commonly referred to as STEM. 

Three major initiatives – School to Career Pathways Initiative, the NCDOT Internship Network and DOT Volunteers – help NCDOT attract and recruit the best talent to help develop a workforce to meet North Carolina's future transportation demands.

Areas of focus include:

  • Making programs available in both rural and urban communities
  • Encouraging broad participation among women and minorities in engineering fields through programs
  • Increasing NCDOT mentorship throughout elementary, middle and high schools
  • Providing multi-disciplinary internship and training opportunities for college and post graduate students
