International Meeting and Traffic Bowl Competition

The ITE International Annual Meeting and Exhibit was held August 14-17, 2016 in Anaheim, CA two weeks ago. During the meeting, UMass ITE competed in the Grand Championship of the Traffic Bowl, attended technical sessions, and socialized with other Nickteams. Francis Tainter, Bhavana Gongalla, and Alyssa Ryan represented the Traffic Bowl team this year.

We are also proud to announce that Nicholas Fournier, a UMass PhD student in Transportation Engineering, attended to accept the ITE Daniel B. Fambro Student Paper Award.

UMass Amherst also was able to attend a Los Angeles Angels game with the University of Manitoba and University of Delaware ITE teams.

Although our Student Chapter Traffic Bowl team did not gain this year’s title, the Annual Meeting in Anaheim was still a large success and great learning experience for the whole team.

We look forward to the start of another great year for the University of Massachusetts Amherst ITE Student Chapter this fall!
