Student Groups

ITE@GT

The Georgia Tech chapter of the Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE@GT) is the largest student-led group for transportation interests on campus. Together with local professionals in the public, private and advocacy sectors, ITE@GT gives students an opportunity to learn about potential careers in transportation. In addition to the professional development, ITE@GT provides a number of outlets for the transportation students to gather during intramurals, social events, community service, and student-led presentations. Our annual mecca to Washington, DC as a group of 35+ students always makes an impression on the transportation research community about the commitment of Georgia Tech to the industry.
