Info Sessions

Info sessions are our primary method for allowing students to learn the full range
of puzzling challenges and captivating opportunities in Transportation
Engineering. Students from a diverse background of interests within engineering
and urban planning attend these meetings, providing a productive discussion
between the students and the professionals. In these info sessions, professionals
allow students to balance their conceptual background acquired in the classroom
with practical knowledge about the industry. In the past, we have hosted speakers
who have led discussions on transportation ballot initiatives and policy (such as
Measure M in 2016), new technology that is taking the industry by storm (such as
ITS and autonomous vehicles), and employment opportunities that interest
students, such as internships and entry-level positions.
