WDCSITE and ITSMD jointly held their annual student workshop and technical meeting at Morgan State University on March 7, 2019.
Students had the opportunity to meet with panels of transportation professionals in mock interviews, and they met with other transportation experts to improve and refine their resumes as they prepare to enter the professional industry. Networking opportunities were abound between students and professionals between the workshop and social settings with food.
Two technical presentations were given. Carole Delion from MDOT SHA presented on Maryland’s updates on connected and automated vehicles, gearing the presentations towards students to engage them in the topic.
Dr. Celeste Chavis of Morgan State University presented alongside several of her students on the topic of food deserts in Baltimore and the associated transportation challenges residents face when purchasing groceries.
