Kittelson & Associates, Inc. a transportation engineering and planning firm with 26 offices across the United States, with an upcoming opportunity for any of your students who might be interested.

Staff at Kittelson have backgrounds in civil engineering, public health, urban planning, sustainability, marketing, graphic design, and landscape architecture, among many other fields of study and prior work experience. Our focus is on developing thoughtful and creative transportation solutions through community engagement that improve the safety, equity, and efficiency of communities. I’m reaching out to you because we have planned a series of virtual events to connect with students this fall and I want to share about the opportunities with you.

Every fall, Kittelson hosts a webinar to introduce students to the transportation profession. The webinar traditionally gives an overview of career paths in transportation, opportunities to build an impactful career in both the private and public sectors, and the biggest challenges and opportunities facing the transportation industry today.

This year, we’ve decided to expand the webinar to a seven-part series. Each event in the series will be hosted by a different set of Kittelson team members and will consist of a short presentation followed by lots of time for Q&A. This way students can pick and choose the topics that interest them the most and benefit from more open discussion. Additionally, the new format gives us meaningful time to connect with students in the virtual environment.

If any of your students might be interested in this series, you can send them this overview of dates and topics or forward the information below. We also welcome you to sign up for one or more sessions if you’re interested! We’d like your feedback as we continue to refine the ways we share information and engage with students.
