The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) Transportation Diversity Recruitment Program (TDRP) is a unique partnership between MDOT, colleges and universities throughout Michigan that offers valuable on-the-job training and job shadowing to undergraduate students pursuing degrees in engineering or other transportation-related careers.

The goal of the TDRP is to recruit and introduce underrepresented groups of students to transportation-specific career opportunities. While participating in this program, students will develop professional competence, long-range career goals, integrate work experiences with academic knowledge, establish a professional network, and earn income that can assist with college expenses. MDOT HBCU TDRP students will work alongside other MDOT-sponsored on-the-job training program participants, internal staff and external professionals who provide engineering, technical, inspection, and project management services for state road and bridge projects.
