About Us

The Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE) is an international educational and scientific association of transportation professionals who are responsible for meeting mobility and safety needs.  ITE facilitates the application of technology and scientific principles to research, planning, functional design, implementation, operation, policy development and management for any mode of ground transportation.  Through its products and services, ITE promotes professional development of its members, supports and encourages education, stimulates research, develops public awareness programs and serves as a conduit for the exchange of professional information.

Founded in 1930, ITE is a community of transportation professionals including, but not limited to, transportation engineers, transportation planners, consultants, educators and researchers.  Through meetings, seminars, publications, and a network of nearly 17,000 members, working in more than 90 countries, ITE is your source for expertise, knowledge and ideas.

The San Diego Section of ITE (previously known as the California Border Section) was established in 1974 and currently has a member of approximately 200 members.  Many of our past presidents for our section are still involved with ITE and are leaders in the community.
