UNM's Institute of Transportation Engineering student chapter recently placed 3rd in the Collegiate Traffic Bowl. The team consisted of Max Dowis, Travis Moe, and Amir Tarighi.

Each year the Institute Transportation Engineering student chapters from Canada and the United States participate in a competition known as the ITE Collegiate Traffic Bowl. This competition features teams comprised of up to 3 students testing their knowledge of ITE, transportation planning and engineering topics as well as some fun categories. Since 2009 when the traffic bowl was introduced throughout Canada and the United States, a total of 115 chapters have participated in at least one traffic bowl at either section or district level events. The winners of the ITE district competitions advance to compete in the Collegiate Traffic Bowl Grand Championship, which is conducted annually at the Institute’s International Annual Meeting and Exhibit.
