ITE’s Second General Meeting Recap

ITE Cal Poly Pomona held its 2nd General Meeting on Thursday, October 17. The guest speaker for the meeting was Vikas Sharma, P.E., an experienced engineer/project manager with a specialization in traffic engineering who has worked with Kimley-Horn and Associates and is currently teaching at Cal State Fullerton. You can read more about Mr. Sharma at https://itecpp.wordpress.com/2013/10/16/ites-second-meeting-w-guest-speaker-vikas-sharma/.

Mr. Sharma talked to members about what it means to work as a traffic engineer, such as answering phone calls from residents and clients, scheduling road and signal maintenance, and reviewing plans.
