The Summer High School Transportation Institute (STI) is an enriching educational opportunity for rising high school juniors and seniors. Since its first STI program in 1993, N.C. A&T's Transportation Institute has introduced hundreds of high school students to careers and academic pursuits in transportation. Many individuals have had successful careers with Fortune 500 companies and government entities. As the oldest National Summer Transportation Institute program in the nation, N.C. A&T is proud to have earned a reputation for offering an exceptional educational experience.

Historically, the demand for people with managerial, technical, and STEM skills far exceeds the supply in the transportation field. That demand remains strong today. As a result, the U.S. Department of Transportation, the North Carolina Department of Transportation and the N.C. A&T Transportation Institute has prioritized recruiting bright young minds to the field to help build a strong foundation for the future transportation industry workforce.
During the summer, STI experience is usually conducted in person on the N.C. A&T campus exposes students to supply chain management, various modes of transportation, and STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) topics and disciplines. They also conduct personal development activities through classroom instruction, group projects, and on-site field trips.
A typical summer schedule would include classroom lectures by private business and education professionals, local and out-of-town field trips, group projects, SAT preparation, personal development activities, and Toastmasters' participation. 
The 2024 Summer Transportation Institute will occur from July 7 to July 24, 2024. The program will be residential, so students will live on campus for two and a half weeks and get a taste of the Aggie experience, including dorm life, campus food, recreational facilities, and more. The program is completely free, including food, lodging, and travel.
