We are thrilled to feature Joceline Suhaimi - a 4th-year undergraduate student from UCLA with impressive accomplishments. Suhaimi is the current President of the Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE) at UCLA and an Executive Assistant at UCLA Institute of Transportation Studies.


Suhaimi is a UCLA Civil and Environmental Engineering major, with a minor in Urban Planning minor. She believes that transportation is a basic human need, and she remembers that she first became interested in transportation when she joined ITE at UCLA in the spring of her freshman year. "The past-president encouraged me to apply for the officer board, and I've been a member ever since,” she shared. “This involvement has led me down an interesting and rewarding path as a budding transportation planner and engineer.” In her three years involvement in ITE, she has been Media Director, Vice President of external affairs, and now President.


Suhaimi is interested in multimodal planning and complete streets, data analytics, and equity in transportation systems. She hopes to plan and design systems that serve the needs of all users, regardless of age, ability, and car ownership.
