The Center for Technology & Training (CTT) is a research center housed at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Michigan Technological University.

The CTT works with local road agencies, the Michigan Department of Transportation, the Federal Highway Administration and other transportation-related organizations to build, maintain and manage public infrastructure. We accomplish this through:

  • Workshops, online training and large annual conferences,
  • Software development, distribution and technical support,
  • Civil engineering research and technology transfer.

These goals are distributed among several ongoing projects, including Michigan LTAP, Roadsoft, MERL, and the Bridge Load Rating program. (Read more)

What are of the costs of running a drinking water utility?  This webinar will help water systems recognize the costs related to operations and capital needs, including costs that systems often overlook.  The webinar will also identify which costs are tied to water production and will describe how costs change over time.  The objective of this webinar is for water systems to be able to calculate their financial needs for the next five years.  The webinar will also summarize the state and federal loan and grant programs that are available to drinking water utilities.
