CME has a new student organization up and running! A packed house attended the first general body meeting of the UIC chapter of the Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE) in October.

“The objective of the ITE-UIC student chapter is to bring together students related to transportation engineering at CME and beyond,” said Nabin Kafle, president of ITE-UIC. “We want to make students more interested in the Transportation Engineering program by conducting regular talks, seminars, and employment opportunities, while connected them to ITE district and scholarship opportunities.”

The student chapter also offers free membership to ITE-UIC chapter, career guidance, networking events, field trips, conferences, and much more.

“The transportation and logistics sector is facing huge challenges and opportunities at the same time,” said faculty advisor Bo Zou, who directs CME’s Transportation and Logistics (TransLog) Research Lab. “There are growing demands, growing environmental concerns, threats from natural and man-made hazards, and rapid technological advances that need to be addressed.” 

ITE is an international educational and scientific association of transportation professionals who are responsible for meeting mobility and safety needs. It facilitates the application of technology and scientific principles to research, planning, functional design, implementation, operation, policy development and management for any mode of ground transportation. ITE promotes professional development of its members, supports and encourages education, stimulates research, develops public awareness programs and serves as a conduit for the exchange of professional information.
