Transportation and Development Institute (T&DI)

The ASCE Orange County Branch Transportation and Development Institute typically holds their bi-monthly luncheons at UCI’s University Club.

The Orange County Branch Transportation and Development Institute (T&DI) Chapter, which was established in September 2016 from an evolution of the long-standing Transportation Technical Group (TTG), allows our members to interact with other professionals in the transportation and development fields of civil engineering.  We regularly send active Orange County branch members to T&DI Congresses held on an annual basis across the country.  We hope the Orange County Branch members will learn new ideas and find interesting speaker topics that we can bring back to our local Branch members.  Periodically, T&DI OC holds joint events with the Orange County Branch during branch general meetings.  The Orange County Branch and the OC T&DI work together to provide continuing education events that are relevant to T&DI members. We hope you will come out and participate in our Institute and work with us to build a strong organization.

The 2016-2017 T&DI - OC Board of Directors

Chair – Matthew Dennerline, PE, GE
Vice Chair –  Dennis Mak, PE
Treasurer – Dr. Sirous Alavi, PE, PTOE
Secretary – Dr. Morteza Fahrtash, PE, PMP
Past Chair – Adrian Anderson, PE

The mission of the Orange County Branch T&DI Chapter is to advance the transportation engineering, planning and development community in a manner consistent with the purpose of the American Society of Civil Engineers and the Transportation and Development Institute of ASCE.  And also to provide members with opportunities to expand and share their knowledge and expertise of transportation engineering, planning, construction and development, particularly as it relates to the unique environment of the Orange County Branch area. The T&DI aims to accomplish this through technical lectures and specialty seminars in addition to tours and other events. Attendees who attend technical lectures and seminars are eligible to receive accredited Professional Development Hours (PDHs) applied towards the Continuing Education Program of the P.E. licensing renewal often required for professional registration in states outside California.

If you would like to present your project at one of our monthly lectures, or if you have any particular related topic that may be of interest to the membership, please do not hesitate to contact any of the T&DI Board members with your questions or comments [email protected]

Please note, the ASCE Orange County Branch T&DI Chapter was formerly known as the Transportation Technical Group (TTG) until September 2016.

Soft Doesn't Mean Easy

By Jeff Braun, P.E. Engineering involves math and science, right? Long enough ago that I don’t want to say how long ago it was, I was a high school student who enjoyed my physics and math classes more than the history and literature readings. I loved tinkering with mechanical toys and seeing how they worked, checking out bridges and buildings to see what kept them from falling down. I loved my drafting class, where I was able to create plans for a house I may want someday.
