Curriculum Vitae

Dr. Mohammad Nazmul Islam has build up his academic and research career on Structural
Engineering since his undergraduate in 1998. His Master’s study and research included Finite Element
Methods and Plate Structures, where he worked on computational mechanics of higher order plate
theories. He nished all requirements for the M. Eng. degree within one year and conducted further
research on deriving stability criteria for column buckling. His Ph.D. works dealt with Fracture
Mechanics of Reinforced and Fiber Reinforced Concrete. He was one of the pioneers in the world to
apply the Theory of Inverse Problems into fracture mechanical models of RC beams. He also
conducted various experiments on RC beams into the Structural Engineering laboratory. He has
numerous research articles in peer reviewed top ranked international journals and also presented
papers in various conferences.

Dr. Nazmul’s teaching expertise includes courses on Mechanics of Solids, Reinforced Concrete, and
Structural Analysis and Design. He lectured on Mechanics of Materials in the Graduate School of the
University of Tokyo. He also has lecturing experiences in Singapore, Japan, Taiwan, Malaysia and New
Zealand. He worked as the Head of the Department of Civil Engineering, Presidency University, Dhaka
for eight years (2005-2013) while he developed huge skills on lecturing and academic administration
and fostered his research career on Structural Engineering. He joined CEED at NSU in 2013.

Dr. Nazmul served as Sta Consultants in two projects of the Asian Development Bank (ADB). He also
served Snowy Mountain Engineering Corporation (SMEC) as consultant on various infrastructure
projects. Dr. Nazmul is a fellow of IEB and a member of International Society for Structural Health
Monitoring of Intelligent Infrastructure. Dr. Nazmul voluntarily works for Road Safety in Bangladesh
