For the first time, St. Louis will be hosting an Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE) Student Leadership Summit, to be held June 17, 18, and 19 on the Washington University in St. Louis campus. Enterprise is sponsoring the 2019 St. Louis ITE Student Leadership Summit.
Other transportation services marketed under the Enterprise brand name include Enterprise Fleet Management, Enterprise Car Sales, Enterprise Truck Rental, Enterprise CarShare, Commute with Enterprise, and the recently launched Subscribe with Enterprise program.
Through breakout sessions, technology demonstrations and the event’s cornerstone design competition, students will put their knowledge to work, participating in discussions and projects aimed at finding solutions to today’s critical transportation challenges.
ITE Student Summits
The mission of the ITE is “to provide the global community of transportation professionals with the knowledge, best practices, and skills to serve the needs of their communities, and to help shape the future of the profession and transportation in the societal context.” Of more than 15,000 ITE members worldwide, approximately 2,000 are students.
ITE Student Leadership Summits are entirely planned by students on campuses around the world to provide the leadership training, professional development, and networking opportunities needed to shape and inspire the next generation of transportation engineers.
The first ITE Student Leadership Summit was held in 2014 at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo in California. Since then, 12 events have been hosted by ITE student chapters around the U.S., Canada, and Australia.
Mobility & Sustainability Goals
Students enrolled in the University of Missouri-St. Louis and Washington University in St. Louis Joint Undergraduate Engineering Program organized the St. Louis Summit. The conference will feature local public transportation engineers, academics, and thought leaders from the two universities as well as the Missouri Department of Transportation and event sponsor Enterprise.
