Welcome to Purdue Road School Transportation Conference and Expo

Road School Dates

Road School continues to provide participants with opportunities to obtain Professional Development Hours (PDHs) toward licensing requirements. Last year, 2,703 attendees recorded 8,604 PDHs with Purdue Conferences. In 2018, over 175 available sessions with PDH credits are available. We are again offering 4 hours of distance learning for sessions on Indiana Statues and Ethics for Professional Engineering, scheduled for Monday and Wednesday.

Many of you may have noticed that the impact of the technical program lasts well beyond the four-day event. Since 2011 we have archived Road School presentations in the Purdue Libraries’ online repository, and in 2015 we added Road School proceedings dating back to 1924. To date these proceedings and presentations have been downloaded more than 244,000 times. This impact would not be possible without the strong participation of colleagues and stakeholders who have shaped the program, which this year includes more than 191 presentations involving nearly 375 speakers and moderators.

You will also notice that campus continues to change. Since you were here last, the Wilmeth Active Learning Center, located at the site of the old power plant opened this past fall with over 2,200 classroom seats in 27 active classrooms. The Bechtel Innovation Center opened a few weeks later providing students with 3D printing, advance machine shops, and garage space for work on vehicles. The semester concluded with the opening of a complete reconstruction of State Street. In addition to attending sessions and meeting with vendors, we hope you take a few minutes to walk around campus and see some of these completed campus projects.
