Maritime Transportation Research and Education Centers (MarTREC) theme is building economic competitiveness through efficient, resilient, and sustainable maritime and multimodal transportation systems.  Our vision is to be recognized as the Nation’s premier source for expertise on maritime and multimodal transportation research and education.

The Center for Training Transportation Professionals (CTTP) is dedicated to the improvement of transportation infrastructure by providing quality education relating to the materials, procedures, and equipment used in all phases of highway construction.

The Southern Plains Transportation Center's (SPTC) mission is twofold: to develop comprehensive, cost- effective, and imminently implementable solutions to critical infrastructure-related issues facing the transportation systems of the region and the nation; and to prepare transportation professionals for leadership roles in professional and research careers in support of the nation’s transportation systems.
