The first ITE student chapters were organized at the University of Illinois and Yale University in 1947. Currently there are 130 chapters around the world. Although the programs and activities of each student chapter vary greatly, the goal of introducing students to the transportation profession and supplementing their classroom and laboratory experiences has been maintained. The objectives of the Institute of Transportation Engineers’ student chapters, as set forth by the Student Chapter Charter, are to:

  • Promote the advancement of transportation and traffic engineering profession by fostering the close association of students with the profession and ITE;
  • Acquaint students with topics of interest in transportation and traffic engineering through competent speakers and chapter-sponsored trips;
  • Foster the development of professional spirit;
  • Promote common interests among students; and
  • Encourage the expansion of facilities for transportation and traffic engineering study.
