The Transportation Engineering program is a close-knit community reflective of our active student organizations, educational opportunities, and strong engagement with the faculty, staff, and research teams. Not to mention one of the most valuable assets: the City of Austin, Texas. Whether it is walking down The Drag to grab lunch, biking to downtown for trivia nights, or playing sand volleyball in Zilker Park – the Transportation Engineering program supports our students in developing a healthy work-life balance.

The joint student chapters of the Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE) and Intelligent Transportation Society (ITS) also host many activities, including student outings, guest speakers, and company tours. For more information, please visit:
