Mission

The Institute for Transportation Research and Education (ITRE) is a university-based entity committed to leadership in the study of surface and air transportation issues through fostering analytical thinking, integrating technology in education and research, serving as a catalyst for problem solving, and cultivating professionals and students dedicated to excellence in transportation.

ITRE’s strategic plan sets forth five major institute-wide goals:

  • Increase national visibility;
  • Conduct and disseminate research that impacts the transportation community;
  • Sustain and enhance educational opportunities to improve the knowledge and skills of transportation professionals;
  • Strengthen the relationship with, and gain recognition within, the University system; and
  • Provide superior technical assistance.

These goals are being achieved through various objectives such as increasing the Institute’s national exposure through conference presentations, published research and outreach efforts, and through increased national project awards. Additionally, ITRE continually expands its training efforts across North Carolina, the United States, and the globe, while promoting collaboration with faculty in the department of Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering at North Carolina State University and at other UNC system institutions.
