M. Sc., The University of Dundee, Scotland, UK, 2010
B. Sc. Engineering (Civil), BUET, 2004

Syed Jamal Uddin Ahmed joined UAP as Assistant Professor in October 2013. Earlier he served as Assistant Professor in the Department of Civil Engineering of the University of Information Technology and Sciences (UITS), Dhaka. After the B.Sc in Civil Engineering from BUET, Syed Jamal worked as Assistant Engineer at Local Government Engineering Department (LGED) for two years and had experience in infrastructural development in Cox’s Bazar District. Later he worked as Civil Engineer at a power plant extension project in Tabuk and as Project Engineer for similar projects in Jeddah, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Syed Jamal completed his M.Sc. in Concrete Engineering and Environmental Management with distinction from the University of Dundee, Scotland, UK in 2010. His research dealt with the Rapid Chloride Durability of concrete through electro-chemical test methods which served as a part of standardization of Rapid Chloride test into British Standard.

At UAP, Syed Jamal takes theory and lab courses on Structural Engineering and Engineering Materials in undergraduate and postgraduate levels. In the recent semesters he taught Engineering Mechanics-I, Mechanics of Solids-I, Design of Concrete Structures-II, Concrete Technology, Engineering Materials Lab and Field Surveying. He also supervises thesis of undergraduate and postgraduate students. Syed Jamal is also serving as Assistant Proctor at the Department. He was advisor for Art & Photography Club of CE students.

His main research interests are Cement and Concrete Technology, Concrete Durability and Assessment, novel cementitious materials, Sustainable Construction and Reinforced concrete. His research at UAP dealt with self-compacting concrete, fly ash, concrete mix parameters, effect of epoxy coating on the bond between steel and concrete, study of rice husk ashes, development in compressed earth blocks and so on. His interests also encompass computer programming and development of mobile applications. Syed Jamal is a member of IEB.
