Three LWIT Eisenhower Fellowship Recipients attended the annual Transportation Research Board (TRB) meeting in Washington, D.C. last month. At the meeting the students presented their Eisenhower projects at a poster session and received recognition during the reception organized by the Federal Highway Administration.
Each year, the TRB meeting attracts approximately 10,000 professionals from around the world to present and exchange their research ideas and learn the latest transportation industry news. This was the first year LWIT students attended.
“It was very exciting to see how LWIT students interacted with professionals and gained valuable comments for their research work,” said Jun Ho, Ph.D., civil engineering graphics instructor at LWIT, who also presented research work at the meeting. “The students all agree this was absolutely an unforgettable experience.”
