ITE's 10th Meeting

On Thursday, April 4th, 2013, ITE Cal Poly Pomona held the 10th general meeting of the year (1st of the spring academic quarter). The guest speaker was Mr. Gheorghe Rosca Jr., P.E., MBA, Cal Poly Pomona Alumnus and Rail Section Manager and Associate at HDR. You can read his full bio here.

Mr. Rosca discussed how public favor is returning to alternative mobility solutions in rail to represent the “Transportation Vision of the Future”. In his presentation, Mr. Rosca discussed a wide range of rail improvement projects planned at the local and regional level. On a project by project basis, Mr. Rosca demonstrated how improvements to rail infrastructure serve as a catalyst for development in the residential, commercial, and industrial markets. In closing thoughts, Mr. Rosca encouraged students to take advantage of the unique engineering opportunities at Cal Poly Pomona where the future rail industry may draw upon.

Among the General Announcements:

  • ITE’s CE499 Transportation Studies groups were featured in a Cal Poly Post article. Over the course of the winter quarter, multiple student-led transportation improvement projects were planned to address on-campus transportation issues. As Mike Biagi, Director of Parking and Transportation Services said, “You guys just did several hundred thousand dollars’ worth of engineering studies for us, for free. Thank you.” Read the full article here
