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
