Carnegie Mellon University student & transportation club member, Brian Hsu attended the Transportation Research Board Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C.
“My experience at the TRB Annual Meeting allowed me to gain insight into the research happening in the transportation industry and into the inner workings of TRB. As a future roadway engineer, I was particularly excited to see the emphasis in roadway design on safety, complete streets, and human factors. I found the discussions about the AASHTO Green Book and how to effectively implement its guidelines to be very informative. I also learned about some fascinating alternative intersection designs. Through participation in committee and subcommittee meetings, I came to understand how TRB functions and what research is occurring. By attending the TRB Annual Meeting and engaging with the research community, I can improve my practice when I become a roadway engineer. Further, the meeting was the perfect place to learn about new research and to engage with knowledgeable students, researchers, and professionals.” – Brian Hsu
