Samdani Azad

Lecturer in Civil Engineering

I have joined as a lecturer at the Department of Civil Engineering, under School of Science and Engineering belonging to the University of Creative Technology, Chittagong (UCTC), Bangladesh. I worked as a Research Assistant during my master degree at Mahidol University gaining valuable experience in computation, structural analysis and dynamics, metaheuristic optimization algorithm development, and fatigue damage assessments of Offshore Structures. At Mahidol University, one of my key achievements was to present research works to International conferences and publishing articles in International Journals. Working as a Research Assistant with the Advisor further developed my depth of knowledge in the research topics, management skills, qualities relevant to the work.
