Written by:

Eco-friendly air transportationDepartment head Markus Buehler announced the formation of the Committee on Transportation Graduate Education, co-chaired by Moshe Ben-Akiva and Emilio Frazzoli (Aeronautics and Astronautics), with Francisco Pereira as designated executive director. Ben-Akiva said, “Our objective is to effectively integrate MIT’s new junior faculty in transportation into the programs and restructure the programs to meet the future needs of society.” Focusing on grand challenges, the committee is charged to determine educational objectives for our Master’s and doctoral programs in transportation, enhance flexibility, and identify specific subject offerings that reflect the interests and composition of the faculty, and that define transportation education for the future. The Committee will also open opportunities to coordinate with the all-Institute Transportation@MIT initiative.
