Congratulations to Margaret Akofio-Sowah and James Wong, two Georgia Tech graduate students, who were recently recently selected by the Board of Regents of the Eno Center for Transportation to participate in the 21st annual Eno Leadership Development Conference in Washington, DC, June 2-6, 2013.
Akofio-Sowah is a doctoral student in civil and environmental engineering and Wong is a joint degree student in civil engineering and city & regional planning. Each year, the intensive Eno Fellowship provides 20 graduate students a first-hand look at how transportation policy is developed and implemented, and offers participants an opportunity to meet with top government officials, leaders of associations, and members of Congress and their staff. The Eno Leadership Conference introduces students to the intricacies of policy development in transportation and provides opportunities for students to meet transportation leaders from across the country. Both students will attend the one week conference in Washington D.C.
NCTSPM is committed to providing quality leadership on research, education, and technology transfer to address issues related to transportation system productivity (including both passenger travel and freight of all modes), economic growth, and finance. The center works with local, state and regional agencies to identify research problems and opportunities.
