On Oct 24, 2014 I attended the Academy banquet and 2014 induction award ceremony of 10 inductees in UT Alumni Center, Austin, Texas. My wife and oldest son were present too.
This award has been the highest honor of my professional/academic life when I was elected a distinguished alum and recognized by one of the top ranked universities in the U.S. and the world.
The University of Texas at Austin is ranked 30 in the 2014 U.S. News and World Report ranking.
The CAEE department ranks 3rd for graduate program and 6th for UG in 2014 U.S. News report ranking.
The CAEE department ranks 6th in the QS world ranking of universities worldwide.
The detailed news of the 2014 award is available on the following link:
UDDIN’s featured profile is the last item.
The above link has a group photo and I am attaching a few other photos.
The award cites “In recognition of a distinguished professional career and lifelong dedication to the support and advancement of engineering education”.
