If the state's logistics and supply chain assets are ignored, valuable opportunities could be missed, said Pasi Lautala, a civil and environmental engineering assistant professor at Michigan Technological University and a member of Snyder's Commission for Logistics and Supply Chain Collaboration.

"With the study we've at least started the work on identifying our shortfalls and the types of actions needed to address them," Lautala said.

"Some of these accidents with the crude oil trains have been drastic reminders that there's still a long way to go," says Pasi Lautala, director of the rail transportation program at Michigan Technological University.

Lautala says, in some ways, freight rail in the U.S. is a victim of its own success, making money and growing enough to attract admirers from around the world - but still facing expensive challenges.

Moreover, the department is developing a new certificate program in rail that would be offered to undergraduate and graduate students, says Pasi Lautala, Michigan Tech's RTP director and assistant professor of civil and environmental engineering.

"We're definitely seeing an increase in students who are interested in rail," says Lautala, adding that not all those students are enrolled in the engineering program.
When the RTP was launched seven years ago, about 10 to 15 students took a course or were involved in a rail project or extracurricular activity through the school's American Railway Engineering and Maintenance Association (AREMA) chapter; today, that number is closer to 75, Lautala says.
Through NURail grants and matching funding from the rail industry, Michigan Tech students completed senior design and enterprise projects over the past two to three years, Lautala says.
Also under NURail, the coalition has worked to share rail course content online with other colleges and universities, now known as "NURail affiliate" campuses. About 14 universities are involved in the program, resulting in more campuses offering a full course in rail engineering or at least integrating a few sessions on rail into their basic transportation programs, Lautala says.
"There's no doubt there are many more universities interested in the rail field" as a result, he says.
Another way to gauge the interest: the increase in AREMA student chapters. Michigan Tech was among the first schools to establish one.
"There's been an explosion in interest in forming AREMA chapters over the last three or four years. And starting a new chapter requires more than just student interest; you have to find a faculty member who's interested in advising the chapter," says Lautala.
