Welcome Student Researchers Innovators Entrepreneurs Thought Leaders


Every year, C2SMART provides funding to outstanding transportation, urban planning, and engineering students whose work is designed to meaningfully advance the field of urban mobility. 

These students are provided with a faculty advisor, as well as an industry mentor to help guide them through roadblocks, challenges, and project planning. In addition, students receive access to C2SMART labs, research, training opportunities, and software licenses.

Each project has a one-year timeline, at the conclusion of which C2SMART brings students, faculty, and industry mentors together to present their achievements.



Discover the opportunities and benefits provided by C2SMART to our student researchers.
