Azizul Islam is a PhD Candidate (2017 – present) within the School of Civil, Environmental and Mining Engineering (CEME) in the Faculty of Engineering, Computer and Mathematical Sciences (ECMS), at the University of Adelaide, Australia. He has been awarded the Australian Government Research Training Program Scholarship by the University of Adelaide to conduct his PhD research. He holds Bachelor (2006) in Civil Engineering from Khulna University of Engineering and Technology (KUET), Bangladesh, and Master (2014) in Structural engineering and energy-efficient sustainable materials from the University of Malaya, Malaysia. He also holds a Specialist Diploma (2012) in Construction Management from Singapore. Azizul worked as a Research Assistant (2012-2014) at the University of Malaya, Malaysia under the High Impact Research (HIR) project supported by the Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE), Malaysia, and the University of Malaya Research Grant (UMRG) project. Beyond academic career, Mr Azizul also worked as a Civil & Structural Engineer for around 10 years in Singapore, Malaysia and Bangladesh.
Mr Azizul has attained multi-directional practical experiences from Singapore and Malaysia in the design and construction of high-rise residential, commercial and hospital projects. In addition, he is experienced in the construction of deep foundation and steel structure. Mr. Azizul was involved in the construction of some of the iconic building projects in Singapore such as Marina Bay Financial Centre (MBFC) Tower 2 (50-story). He worked as a Civil & Structural Engineer (2008 – 2012) at several consultancies in Singapore. Mr Azizul also worked as a Structural Engineer under the Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) project, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. He also performed as a Project Manager and Structural Engineer (2014 – 2017) in several competitive projects in Malaysia.
Mr Azizul’s current research is dealing with the improvement of a complex structural modelling system made of light-weight composites for energy-efficient structures which includes Renewable and Sustainable Energy, Finite Element Modelling of Advanced Materials (i.e. fibre-reinforced polymer (FRP) composites), Structural Analysis, Thin-walled Structures, Structural Engineering. His previous researches include Sustainable Construction Materials (i.e. geopolymer composites, green concrete), Structural Analysis, and Engineering Materials.
