The Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE) is an international educational and scientific association. ITE members are traffic engineers, transportation planners, and other professionals who are responsible for meeting society's needs for safe and efficient surface transportation through planning, design, implementation, operation, and maintenance of transportation systems.
The constitution of the Purdue University Student Chapter of ITE was approved on January 14, 1977, with Student President James R. Mekemson and Faculty Advisor Dr. Kumares Sinha. The chapter currently has 39 student members at the graduate and undergraduate level.
Purdue ITE introduces students to the transportation profession and promotes the advancement of the profession by fostering close association of students with practicing engineers, educators from other institutions, and local and national chapters of ITE. Other objectives of this chapter include fostering the development of professional spirit, acquainting students with topics of interest in transportation, and promoting common interests among students.
