Professor Dr. Md. Monirul Islam is Chair of the Department of Civil Engineering, IUBAT-International University of Business Agriculture and Technology, Dhaka, Bangladesh and Director of South Asian Disaster Management Centre (SADMC).
Dr. Islam has got a distinguished academic background. He obtained his BSc Engineering in Civil from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) and he did his Masters in Civil Engineering and PhD from the Graduate School of Engineering, Kitami Institute of Technology under the Japan Government Monbusho Scholarship in Remote Sensing and GIS on Environmental Hazard.
He has a distinguished service and research career as a professional for over 20 years in the field of Environmental Hazard. His activities are focused on remote sensing and GIS techniques for oceanography, marine hydrodynamics, water quality modeling, environmental hazards such as flood hazard assessment, etc. Dr Islam has also focused on the study of ocean color monitoring, sea surface temperature and Lake Water quality monitoring by using satellite remote sensing data and the integration of remote sensing data with mathematical modeling.
Dr Islam has published more than 50 papers in several peer reviewed journals, conferences proceedings and he is the author of several technical reports. Since his involvement in the research field, he has made a numbers of technical and business presentations to about sixty national and international conferences and meetings in Bangladesh, India, Japan, Korea, Norway, Singapore, Taipei, Thailand, Germany, France, Belgium, Indonesia, Malaysia and United States and in Institutions like Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), numerous government agencies and Hokkaido Prefecture, and deliberated several key note speeches on disaster management such as flood, cyclone, tornado by using remote sensing and GIS to National University of Singapore, Tokyo University of Agriculture and Hokkaido University, etc.
He also developed flood hazard map, land development map and risk assessment technique for flood hazard for Bangladesh and water quality monitoring for case II water by using remote sensing and GIS, which were published in the Journal of ASCE, Hydrological Process and Hydrological Science and Water Resources, etc. His teaching interest is in the field of structural engineering, hydraulic structure and earthquake and disaster management. He is a registered structural engineer of Rajuk, Dhaka, Bangladesh.
