Dr. Nazrul Islam
DEPARTMENT OF CIVIL ENGINEERING
Specialization: Structural Engineering
Nazrul Islam received Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering with a specialization in structural engineering from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET), Dhaka, Bangladesh in 2007. He completed Master of Science degree in Civil (Structural) Engineering from the same institution with a research focus on structural optimization. He joined as a lecturer in the Civil Engineering Department of BUET after completion of the bachelor degree and promoted as an Assistant Professor in 2011. For pursuing higher studies with the commitment to serving the community, Nazrul Islam moved to the USA and started doctoral studies in Structural Mechanics at North Carolina State University, Raleigh, NC. His Ph. D. research focused on developing advanced constitutive models for room and high-temperature applications in the fossil and nuclear power industries. As a part of doctoral studies, he worked on the research projects funded by the Department of Energy (DOE), National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Fossil Power division of the Babcock and Wilcox Company, Ohio, USA. Dr. Islam moved back to his home country after completion of his doctoral studies and rejoined as an Assistant Professor at BUET. Now he is serving as an Associate Professor in the same department of BUET.
