2013 Selections of National, Regional, and Tier-1 University Transportation Centers (UTCS)
September 24, 2013
Today, the Research and Innovative Technology Administration (RITA) of the U.S. Department of Transportation (US DOT) announced the 2013 selections of National, Regional, and Tier-1 University Transportation Centers (UTCs). The University of Central Florida, together with its partners of University of Hawaii and Tuskegee University, was selected as one of Tier-1 UTCs. The UCF proposal, entitled Electric Vehicle Transportation Center (EVTC) and jointly submitted by FSEC, CECE and ECE, aims at transforming this county’s transportation network into a fully integrated “smart” electric vehicle deployment system coupled with a “smart” electric grid. The UTC at UCF is funded for $1.4M per year for the next two years.
