CAIT on a Mission

Dr. Uddin established the Center for Advanced Infrastructure Technology at UM in 1999. Its mission is to develop and implement advanced computer simulations and remote sensing technologies for building longer lasting airfield pavements and intermodal facilities, monitoring and preserving the transportation infrastructure, and developing cost-effective procedures for improving anti-terrorism readiness, mobility through assessment and airfield suitability analysis, and security evaluations for troop and personnel deployment during emergency, humanitarian and war operations.

Safer Highways for Mississippi

As part of his infrastructure research, Dr. Waheed Uddin advocated tirelessly for safer highways for Mississippi drivers. Mississippi leads the nation in traffic fatalities per capita, with 579 fatal crashes in 2020. Dr. Uddin often spoke out on this issue, proposing changes to our highway systems that could save lives. Today, his former students carry forth his work in the state. This scholarship will go to students who will make a difference by continuing to build on Dr. Uddin's research and advocacy for our citizens.

$1,000

Direct Impact on Students

Your $1,000 gift funds one scholarship for one civil engineering student. Dr. Uddin's lasting impact on the state is the thousands of students he taught and mentored over the years who then went to work improving Mississippi's infrastructure. Your gift makes an impact now and in the future!
