Dr. A.F.M. Saiful Amin has been in the field of Civil Engineering since graduating from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) in 1996. He then earned his Master of Science degree from his Alma Mater in 1998. After being awarded a scholarship in 1998 from the Japanese Government, Dr. Amin completed his PhD in 2001 at Saitama University. He is currently a Professor within the Civil Engineering department at BUET, and has been a Visiting Professor at the University of Federal Armed Forces (Munich, Germany), and the University of Kassel (Germany).
Dr. Amin has been actively contributing to this field in many disciplines over the past two decades including structural engineering with the use of finite element methods and strain theories, cement chemistry, forensic engineering, as well as experimental, structural, and continuum mechanics. His realm of expertise also includes thermodynamics, thermo-physics, and modeling nonlinear material behavior under large deformation.
