Welcome to STEP

Students in Transportation Engineering and Planning (STEP), Portland State University's ITE student chapter, engages its members in relevant transportation issues and activities to further professional and academic development. The chapter facilitates relationships between transportation students from different disciplines, both within PSU and with other universities, with a view toward building a shared understanding that would be helpful to students both in their academic studies and in practice.
