Transportation (TTG)

The ASCE Orange County Branch Transportation Technical Group holds their bi-monthly luncheons at UCI’s University Club.  

The Orange County Branch Transportation Technical Group (TTG) allows our members to interact with other professionals in the transportation field of civil engineering.  We regularly send active Orange County branch members to Transportation and Development Institute (T&DI) Congresses held on a annual bases 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 TTG OC holds joint events with the Orange County Branch during branch general meetings.  The Orange County Branch and the TTG OC work together to provide continuing educations events that are relevant TTG members.
