Welcome to UC Berkeley
The UC Berkeley (Cal) ITE Student Chapter is very excited to host the 6th annual 2019 Student Leadership Summit (SLS). SLS 2019 will take place on the weekend of January 25th - 27th on the UC Berkeley Campus and the surrounding area in Berkeley, California.
We are expecting up to 150 students to attend from around 20 universities as well as many professional from the public, private, and academic sectors. Home to some of the biggest public and private transportation agencies and academic research, UC Berkeley is at the center of one of the biggest and most innovative transportation communities in the world, and Cal ITE’s SLS offers a unique mix of opportunities for students to build their leadership and technical skills.
Some of the fun activities to look forward to:
- Presentations by both industry and academic professionals:
- Sustainability panel on AVs.
- Technical presentations on transportation engineering and planning
- Technical walking tour of the Berkeley Pedestrian Plan on Friday at 3 PM led by Kittelson and the city of Berkeley
- Technical, professional, and leadership development
- Mock speed interviews and resume workshops with industry professionals
- Student Student Team Competition
- Networking opportunities with both professionals and other students:
- Friday Night Social at Triple Rock (6-8pm)
- Small group Q&A’s between professionals and students
- Plenty of other opportunities to meet and socialize with students and friends from other ITE student chapters
