The Virginia Tech-National Capital Region student (VT-NCR) chapter of Institute of Transportation Engineer’s (ITE) objective is to build a community of students and professionals interested in the world of Transportation and Traffic Engineering. Our chapter aims to acquaint students with real world problems in the field by inviting speakers from both academia and industry. Throughout our events, members will find opportunities to grow their professional and academic network, to hunt for their desired jobs and to engage in collaborative research opportunities. Beyond traditional activities, VT-NCR chapter aims to serve the public community by holding informative sessions with the neighboring schools, inviting speakers to discuss transportation and traffic issues and raising awareness among the public and to share all this knowledge to make a difference in our community.
