MESA/ STEM Students enrolled in an Engineering Work Experience 190 this semester. This class is a 1 unit seminar which explores and evaluates transportation related topics. Engineering Instructor, Antonio Castro is assisting students in acquiring discipline awareness as well as focus on the requirements stipulated through the Dwight David Eisenhower Fellowship awarded to the MESA program.
In this class, recipients prepared a research paper on a topic directly related to a relevant transportation problem or issue, with the approval of Antonio Castro, Faculty Advisor. Students attended Transportation Research Board (TRB) held January 13-17, 2013 in Washington, DC where they presented their research project.
