We invite all current and incoming university students studying transportation in Oregon (all disciplines!) to meet with some of the local professional organizations of Oregon that offer networking, professional development opportunities, scholarships, mentoring programs and more! Learn how you can start connecting with career professionals now to prepare for what comes after university. We'll begin with a brief introduction from each organization, and then we'll head to breakout rooms where students can hop around and talk with different representatives from each of the professional organizations:
- WTS Portland (Women in Transportation Seminar)
- YPT Portland (Young Professionals in Transportation)
- Oregon ITE (Institute of Transportation Engineers)
- Oregon APA (American Planning Association)
This event is co-hosted by the Transportation Research and Education Center (TREC) at Portland State University and WTS Portland.
