What do we do?
Cal ITE exists to bring together anyone interested in the ever-growing and important field of transportation. We do this through out general meetings and field trips, and by organizing groups to attend the Student Leadership Summit and Western ITE Annual Meeting
We hold monthly meetings where we invite speakers from various transportation companies and agencies to talk to us. This is an excellent opportunity to learn about what they do, what they work on, and what projects are going on right now.
In the past, we've invited speakers from:
We organize field trips to projects and offices in the area to get a first-hand look at the field of transportation.
In the past, field trips have included:
Student Leadership Summit (SLS)
Usually held in the winter, this is a multi-day conference run by an ITE student chapter and designed for students. It is an excellent opportunity to meet other students from across the Western US who are also interested in transportation. There are social events, professional development activities, and seminars on transportation topics.
Cal ITE subsidizes the cost for members to attend this event. The next SLS will be held at CSU Fullerton from January 13-15, 2017. If you are interested in attending, stay on the lookout for announcements from Cal ITE later this semester.
Western ITE Annual Meeting
Usually held in the summer, this is a multi-day conference put on by the Western District of ITE, which covers all student and professional chapters of ITE in the Western United States. This is an excellent opportunity to network with transportation professionals and learn about the state of the art of transportation practice and research.
Other events held during the meeting including the Mitey Race, an Amazing Race-style competition held around the event location and the Traffic Bowl, a Jeopardy-style competition where teams of three students or professionals answer transportation trivia.
Cal ITE subsidizes the cost for members to attend this event. The next Western ITE Meeting will be held in San Diego from June 18-21, 2017. If you are interested in attending, stay on the lookout for announcements from Cal ITE later this semester.
