Student ITS Competitions

During the 4th University Workshop, participants suggested that the ITS PCB Program develop a student competition to assist ITS students in developing their communication and presentation skills for non-academic audiences, as well as to facilitate connections with potential employers. As a result, the ITS PCB Program developed the Transportation Technology Tournament (TTT). The TTT will be an annual event that will begin in the winter and end with final presentations to judges in the summer. The inaugural competition cycle is being held in 2018.

The 2018 competition is being planned in partnership with the National Operations Center of Excellence (NOCoE). Final presentations will take place during the Institute of Transportation Engineers' (ITE) annual meeting in Minneapolis, Minnesota in August 2018.

The ITS PCB Program recognizes the value that competitions have to students, and so will also use this webpage to advertise other ITS-related student competitions as well. Please check back regularly for updates. To notify the ITS PCB Program of an ITS competition you’d like advertised, please contact itspcb@dot.gov.

A detailed description of the TTT, its deadlines, and a list of the student teams participating is available at https://transportationops.org/transportation-technology-tournament.
