MATC Intern Program

About the Program

The MATC intern program has a rich history of offering unique real-world experiences in transportation to outstanding undergraduate students. The program began at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and has since expanded to include consortium members across Region VII. Providing internship experiences helps recruit graduates into the profession and into graduate programs, with nearly 75% of interns continuing on to a career in a transportation-related field. Depending on their interests and background, interns are assigned to projects with private consultants, public agencies, or university researchers. Some students also intern for a second year for a more in-depth experience.
