MSTM students regularly win prestigious state and national awards from organizations such as the American Public Transportation Foundation, ITS California, and WTS. Meet some of our recent student award winners here.
MSTM and certificate alumni belong to three different alumni organizations, each of which offer graduates networking opportunities and a range of formal and informal supports.
MTIConnect is the alumnni group for graduates of the transportation management masters and certificate programs. The association provides helpful resources for current and past students through its newsletter, web site, capstone coach program, and networking events.
And graduates are, of course, also part of the university-wide SJSU Alumni Network.
