CCAT Students Runner-Up in Climate Change Competition
Two students under the CCAT grant, Abdullah Nafakh and Isaiah Mwamba, were recently awarded runner-up in the Purdue Climate Change Research Video Competition. Their video, titled “Infrastructure and the Environment: A Love-Hate Relationship”, argues that Transportation Engineers have the capability to turn this into a “Love-Love Story” by planning and designing in a sustainable and resilient manner. If done properly, Nafakh and Mwamba argue that connected and automated vehicles could help address transportation-related environmental issues and equity.
Nafakh was recently awarded Student of the Year at the Council of University Transportation Center’s Winter Meeting, which was held virtually this year. Those interested in watching their submission can do so below:
