Oscar Huang, a graduate student in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Texas A&M University, has been selected as the Transportation Consortium of Southern States’ (Trans-SET) 2021 University Transportation Centers (UTC) Outstanding Student of the Year recipient. 

Huang’s research focuses on applying geopolymer to replace ordinary Portland cement in various transportation infrastructure applications such as soil stabilization, concrete and corrosion mitigation.

He is pursuing his doctorate degree under the guidance of Dr. Miladin Radovic, professor in the department. 

“It is humbling to be selected for this award, and I would like to thank my advisor for believing in me and pushing me during every step of my Ph.D. journey,” said Huang. 

Award recipients will attend the Council of University Transportation Centers (CUTC) awards ceremony in January 2022. They will also have their biographies and other information featured in the awards banquet booklet. 

Trans-SET is a collaborative partnership of 11 institutions of higher learning across five states, including Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas.

According to their website, Trans-SET aims to “solve emerging transportation resiliency, sustainability and economic challenges through the use of innovative materials and construction methods: from research to implementation.”
