CEAT Outreach Program

The CEAT Outreach Program is largely sponsored by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) through a project entitled, Minority Summer Internship Program. The O’Hare Modernization Program (OMP) has sponsored outreach programs with CEAT in conjuction with the University of Illinois' College of Engineering. Through these partnerships, the Center is able to collaborate on common research goals and complementary outreach programs. Priorities for the outreach program include the advancement of traditionally underrepresented groups in engineering and construction; improved educational opportunities that draw students to technical career paths; internship programs that expose students to vocational, professional and entrepreneurial opportunities; and communication with the public.
