Members of the College’s Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE) student chapter received the 2024 Momentum Award at the ITE Great Lakes District annual meeting in June.

The Momentum Award is given to one of the 27 student chapters in the district that has experienced the most improved involvement in the past year. 

The 15-member UWM organization began its revival last fall. Since then, the group has amped up its activities, volunteering around Milwaukee, attending professional meetings, and

co-hosting events with other College organizations such as the American Society of Civil Engineers.  

Tom Shi, assistant professor of civil & environmental engineering, is the organization’s faculty advisor.

The Great Lakes District is comprised of Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota and Wisconsin.
