Essam Radwan, Ph.D., P.E. , F. ASCE Executive Director of CATSS Phone:(407)823-2945 E-mail-Address:Eradwan@ucf.edu
As CATSS Executive Director, it gives great pleasure to report that the center has witnessed a phenomenal growth in graduate students enrollment, faculty, research associates, and Post Doctoral participation.
We revisited the center’s strategic plan and realized that we have to make some adjustments to future strategic initiatives. The changes in the profession in terms of new technologies, safety and security issues, and shortage in trained professionals have given us an opportunity to restructure the center to meet these new challenges. At the top level, Dr. Aty has been appointed as CATSS Deputy Director. Five programs were crystallized to support the theme of the center and they are: Advanced Intelligent Transportation Technologies & Communications, Traffic Safety, Advanced Simulation Training & Transportation Applications, Congestion Pricing , and Transportation & Air Quality.
I am honored to continue my affiliation with CATSS and invite you to share our excitement while we start our fourteenth year in operation. Please drop me a note or stop by to visit our labs and chat with our faculty, research associates, and students and witness tomorrow’s research and education being executed today.
