Welcome to the Arizona State University chapter of the Institute of Transportation Engineers
ASU - ITE is a group of students interested in entering the transportation field. Our mission is to aid our fellow students in learning more about the profession and finding jobs and internships while at the same time attracting others to the field of transportation. We educate ourselves by attending professional seminars, participating in traffic count opportunities, and taking field trips to local sites of interest. We educate each other through community service and social events, as well as general body meetings.
