My presentation will discuss “ITE and Emerging Directions in Transportation Engineering”. The presentation will provide an overview of ITE, particularly as it may be of interest to student members. It will then provide an overview of key facets of transportation engineering, and delve into four key future directions in transportation engineering including Complete Streets, Multi-Modal Transportation Analysis, Modelling, and Big Data. It will share examples of past projects including vehicular and pedestrian micro-simulation. There will be time at the end for open-ended discussion about future directions in transportation.
