The Program provides unique graduate study and research opportunities. The program includes all aspects of planning, design, construction, operation, management, and rehabilitation of transportation infrastructure and systems. As its name suggests, TISE Program consists of 2 main sections, namely, Infrastructure and Systems.
The Virginia Smart Road is a unique, state-of-the-art, full-scale research facility for pavement research and evaluation of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) concepts, technologies, and products. It is the first facility of its kind to be built from the ground up with its infrastructure incorporated into the roadway.
The Institute of Transportation Engineering (ITE) is the organization for all students interested in transportation engineering. Its goal is to promote the dissemination of knowledge and information related to transportation infrastructure and systems issues, problems and solutions. The Virginia Tech chapter is a recognized student chapter of the global ITE organization (https://www.ite.org/) and provides a gateway to networking with and accessing resources available through this community of transportation professionals.
