Engineering students from Northeastern to study traffic in Mansfield
The Sun Chronicle - 02/09/2014
The town will soon get help from a group of roads scholars.
Twenty-seven civil engineering students at Northeastern University are working with Professor Daniel Dulaski, a Mansfield resident, studying traffic patterns and development plans around town.
Dulaski’s senior students are conducting the research as part of a transportation “capstone” program in which students get real-world experience by acting as professional consultants for municipalities.
Students break off into teams to tackle a certain area of the community, performing studies and speaking with the public and town officials to submit a final proposal that updates or fixes a particular transportation concern.
