Traffic Engineering is the subdiscipline of transportation engineering that addresses the planning, design and operation of streets and highways, their networks, adjacent land uses and interaction with other modes of transportation and their terminals. ITE provides a wide variety of tools and training materials that address traffic engineering.
Certification as a Professional Traffic Operations Engineer® (PTOE) is a powerful demonstration of requisite knowledge, skill and ability in the specialized application of traffic operations engineering. The certification process, which has been adopted for professional traffic operations engineers, requires that the holder be a licensed professional engineer if he or she practices in the United States, Canada or any other country that provides governmental licensing of engineers.
