Student Presentation Competition
The Toronto, Hamilton, and Southwest Ontario sections’ Joint Technical Presentation Competition for Students is a unique event organized annually by the Canadian Institute of Transportation Engineers (CITE) to help foster interest in the field of transportation. The Toronto and Hamilton sections have jointly held the event since 1996 and were joined by the Southwest Ontario section in 2009. The competition offers students an opportunity to present a topic of interest in transportation before their peers and practicing transportation professionals. While technical competence is an important element, the primary focus of the competition is on the ability to present effectively to one’s peers and the public.
