For a number of Morgan graduate students interested in pursuing challenging careers in the field of transportation, the Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT)-Morgan State University (MSU) Graduate School Internship Program has created a pathway to future opportunity. The program pairs students with a year-long paid internship at one of the State of Maryland’s six transportation agencies or at the MDOT headquarters and allows them to work part-time during the school year and full-time during the summer in a position with real responsibilities. Recently, 12 Morgan students completed the internship program and this July, a new group of 13 students were accepted to participate during the 2016-2017 year.
The MDOT/MSU Graduate School Internship program has been in existence for 28 years and some 250 students have participated. The program runs annually from July to June. Application submissions are coordinated through the National Transportation Center at Morgan.
