The 2016-2017 academic year has been a great era for the Student Chapter of the Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE) at University of Tennessee (UT). It was a great honor to serve as the president and also to be part of the many accomplishments of the Chapter. In an age where new technologies are rapidly emerging to meet transportation challenges, we cannot help but to be kept abreast with the pace of such technological advancements. The ITE student chapter at UT was committed to serving its members by organizing transportation seminars, sponsoring members to attend professional development meetings and creating avenues for students to connect and give back to the community with the goal of promoting safer environment for the movement of people and goods in an efficient manner. I am pleased to share with you some of our notable accomplishments in the past year.
