Education, Training, and Workforce Development

We are on the cusp of a revolution in transportation on a scale we have not seen in over 100 years. This revolution is being led by the rapid development of connected and automated vehicle (CAV) technologies. Critical to the successful deployment of these technologies are education and workforce development. There exists a need for both engineers as well as skilled technicians.

CCAT partners provide a full spectrum of leadership development and educational programs, ranging from leadership training to full-scale engineering programs and 2- and 4-year degree programs.

CCAT also will engage in summer research programs, internships, camps, and other creative opportunities to engage our future workforce and help inspire the future leaders of this rapidly transforming industry.

CCAT will work with student chapters of ITE, ITS Michigan, and WTS at U-M with the goal of attracting more students to the field of connected and automated transportation. CCAT will also provide graduate students with opportunities to advance their academic knowledge in the classroom through team-oriented research and activities designed to develop future leaders.
