About WTS Houston Student Chapters and Student Members

WTS Houston is committed to attracting the next generation of transportation professionals by supporting student members and student chapters. We currently have two active student chapters: WTS Texas A&M University (TAMU) and WTS Texas Southern University (TSU). Each chapter holds general meetings, organizes on-campus and off-campus events (technical, social, and volunteer), and participates in Houston Chapter events. If you are a student at TAMU or TSU, please join your on-campus chapter!

If you do not yet have a chapter on your campus, we invite you to become an active member of WTS Houston! As a member, you will have opportunities to network with professionals in the transportation industry, have access to WTS Houston members-only events, and connect with other students and professionals that are in your field of study. WTS is an interdisciplinary organization, with professionals supporting multi-modal, roadway, rail, airport and maritime transportation projects.

Part of your WTS Houston membership will give you access to My WTS Communities. This portal gives you access to mentorship (Mentor Match), a career center with international postings, a Knowledge Lab with industry resources, WTS International sponsored scholarships, and discounted rates on educational and professional development programs.

If you would like to know more about WTS Houston Chapter, if your major may lead to a career in the transportation industry, or any other WTS related topic, please send us an email.
