Through federal, state, and industry funding as well as assistance from CRR, researchers work closely with, and extend the research efforts of, railroad laboratories. Working with CRR and industry partners allows for implementation, evaluation, and refinement of state-of-the-art findings in a real-world environment.
The center maintains a strong commitment to higher education since many of its researchers hold joint appointments with colleges in The Texas A&M University System. In addition, graduate and undergraduate students actively participate in, and make significant contributions to, the center’s successful research program.
