New University Research Center to Test Boundaries of Smart Transportation in New York City and Beyond | NYU Tandon School of Engineering
The U.S. Department of Transportation has selected a research consortium led by the New York University Tandon School of Engineering to become the first Tier 1 University Transportation Center (UTC) in New York City, charged with taking on some of the most pressing mobility challenges facing urban areas of all sizes.
The consortium proposal, led by Kaan Ozbay, a professor in the NYU Tandon Department of Civil and Urban Engineering, won the prestigious UTC designation from among 212 applications to the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act competition. The new research and education center will receive a five-year, $7 million U.S. Department of Transportation grant that will be supplemented with matching funds that will bring its budget to $10.5 million for the five years.
