Prior to his appointment as Minister of National Infrastructure in 2009, Uzi Landau, a Member of the Knesset from Yisrael Beitanu party, served as Israel's Minister of Public Security, and as Minister in the Prime Minister's Office.
A systems analyst by profession who once served as Director General of Israel's Transport Ministry, Landau holds a Ph.D. from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees from the Technion in Haifa.
