Union Pacific Railroad Donates to Michigan Tech

Union Pacific Railroad has provided $27,500 to support rail related activities at Michigan Tech. Mr. Greg Garrison, Vice President of Transportation for the Northern Region and Michigan Tech's Executive Sponsor presented the support during his visit on campus in early November. The funds will be distributed between the Rail Transportation Program, Career Center and a funded undergraduate senior design project in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering that investigates "The Effectiveness of a Rail Shunt". The project is funded in collaboration with the National University Rail Center (NURail).
