On November 17, the annual MSCE (Master of Civil Engineering) Transportation Program dinner was held in Chinatown near Downtown Los Angeles. Professor James Moore, Vice-Dean for Academic Programs of USC Viterbi School of Engineering, organized and sponsored the event, and second-year MSCE student Nicole (Haichao) Guo helped in planning and coordinating the dinner with the restaurant.

This year, the dinner invitation was extended to Sol Price School of Public Policy transportation concentration students and alumni as well. 15 current students, 3 alumni, and 4 professors joined the dinner. The group also happily included USC alumnus Genaro Mejia, who  currently works at ARUP, and will join the MSCE program faculty team in Spring 2017.
