Cebelak Chosen to Represent UT Austin at Eno Conference
Meredith Cebelak, P.E., was recently selected to represent The University of Texas at Austin at the 21st Annual Leadership Development Conference, hosted by the Eno Center for Transportation. This conference, held in Washington DC June 2–6, is attended by 20 of the nation’s top graduate students in transportation and gives them a first-hand look at how national transportation policies are developed. During the Conference these “Eno Fellows” meet with federal officials and leaders of business and non-profit organizations.
The Eno Leadership Development Conference is designed for students in transportation-related programs, including engineering, planning, public policy, public administration, economics, business, and law. Universities are invited to nominate one student from each transportation-related discipline.
Ms. Cebelak had over 10 years of experience in the private sector before returning to school to pursue her masters and PhD at the University of Texas at Austin. As a graduate assistant to Dr. C. Michael Walton, P.E., she is on the Technical Assistance project for the Texas Department of Transportation’s Austin District, which investigates the use of intelligent transportation system (ITS) solutions for the area’s transportation needs. She is a member of the student chapter of Women’s Transportation Seminar and the student chapter of the Intelligent Transportation Society of America, and is the current president of the student chapter of the Institute of Transportation Engineers. Additionally, she serves on the CTR Employee Council Committee as the student representative.
