Keynote Speaker:

Arthur Guzzetti, Vice President- Policy, American Public Transportation Association (APTA)

On October 20th, seventeen rail industry companies from Class 1 freight railroads to engineering consultants and manufacturers sponsored the 2nd Annual Rail Day/Expo . The day featured a morning poster session highlighting student and faculty rail research at Tech, an industry recruitment Expo with technology demonstrations, industry panel discussion, and the Railroad Night XI.  Nearly 200 students from  various disciplines participated in the different events througout the day and Railroad Night XI brought together over 130 students, faculty, administration and community members to network, discuss rail transportation and to learn from latest policy issues from our Keynote Speaker, Art Guzzetti.  Overall, the event was deemed a great success, and the Rail Transportation Program/Railroad Engineering Activities Club have already started the early planning activities for the 3rd Annual Rail Day/Expo in 2016.
