Somayeh Moazzeni, a UTA doctoral student in public policy and transportation, has been recognized by the U.S. Department of Transportation as the 2017 outstanding student of the year for C-TEDD.

C-TEDD is the Center for Transportation, Equity, Decisions and Dollars based at The University of Texas at Arlington.

Moazzeni was selected from students at universities contributing to C-TEDD, which includes UTA, Georgia Tech University, California Polytechnic State University, University of Wisconsin-Madison and University of South Florida.

C-TEDD is one of three DOT-funded centers that faculty and students at UTA are participating in.

C-TEDD and the other centers UTA is involved in speak to the University's growing expertise across several academic and research disciplines that intersect the nation's current and future focus on transportation infrastructure.

Every DOT-created center in the United States nominates an outstanding student of the year.
