About Us

The Mission of IIAM is to foster the development of technology and services innovations that lead to more effective solutions to infrastructure problems for 21st-century cities. Our education, training, and technology transfer program objectives include facilitating the exchange of new ideas and business resources across globally diverse regions; and applying new tools to improve the effective assessment and diagnosis of infrastructure performance. Through our international conference initiatives, our objective is to convene leading expertise to generate discourse and influence infrastructure technology policy in cities around the world.

Who We Are

The Institute was formed in 1998 as an outgrowth of academic research and related activities. Several practical-minded faculty members of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute teamed up with industrial leaders and former government personnel to create a unique new entity to serve the transportation industry. IIAM has proven to be a flexible, capable organization with a consistent record of successful service. Initiatives are currently underway to expand IIAM’s presence across the US.

The IIAM team includes individuals with extensive experience in the practical aspects of training field personnel, as well as in the daily operation and management of transportation agencies. IIAM can call on additional personnel as needed for expertise in budget and finance, capital programming, scheduling, and budgeting, program planning, and other pertinent areas. We understand well the important role of politics, communication, and leadership, as key members of our staff have served as chief engineers, assistant commissioners, executives, etc., of transportation agencies.
