Engineering students are organizing a statewide conference, “Sustainability in Transportation,” to be held Thursday September 26 at N.C. A&T.

The full-day event is targeted to practicing civil engineers and transportation engineers, other professionals, faculty and students. The event is being organized by the A&T student chapters of the Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE) and the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE).

Students from universities across the state will present their research. Participating schools include N.C. A&T, North Carolina State University and the University of North Carolina Charlotte.

The morning session, “Facility Construction and Maintenance,” will begin at 8:30 a.m. After lunch, the afternoon session, “Design and Planning,” will begin at 1 p.m. Lunch is included in the registration fee, $50 for active members of ASCE and ITE and $60 for nonmembers. Student admission is free.

Professionals will earn three professional development hours for each session.
