About the Program

The HEEP Educator Student Participation program is designed to build closer ties with educators and students interested in the field of transportation engineering, and especially the use of the information systems technology in that field.

The IHEEP conference is an opportunity for civil engineering students to network for their future careers, learn about current industry trends and challenges facing transportation agencies, and see new transportation products on the market.
