March 10, 2022
BATON ROUGE, LA – The LSU Transportation Consortium of South-Central States, or Tran-SET, was recently honored with the Council of University Transportation Centers’ (CUTC) Workforce Development Leadership Award. The national award recognizes institutions who exhibit outstanding leadership in designing and delivering workforce development programs.
Receiving the award on behalf of Tran-SET was LSU Construction Management Professor and Tran-SET Director Marwa Hassan and Tran-SET Program Manager Momen Mousa, who was also awarded a grant from the CUTC New Initiatives Program to produce a workforce development program that will educate transportation professionals on emerging transportation topics.
CUTC was established in 1979 by the major transportation research centers and institutes in the United States. It is a non-profit organization that provides a forum for universities and centers to interact collectively with government and industry.
Tran-SET is housed in the Bert S. Turner Department of Construction Management and funded by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT). It is a DOT Region 6 University Transportation Center that consists of five states—Louisiana, Arkansas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas.
It is a collaborative partnership between 11 institutions—LSU, Arkansas State University, Baton Rouge Community College, Navajo Technical University, New Mexico State University, Oklahoma State University, Prairie View A&M University, Texas A&M University, University of New Mexico, University of Texas-Arlington, and University of Texas at San Antonio.
Tran-SET is led by LSU and was established in late-November 2016 “to address the accelerated deterioration of transportation infrastructure through the development, evaluation, and implementation of cutting-edge technologies, novel materials, and innovative construction management processes.”
