Academic Chronology

Md. Shahadat Hossain graduated in Water Resources Engineering from Bangladesh University of Engineering & Technology in October 2009. Later he completed M.Sc. in Water Resources Engineering from the same university in April 2015.

Professional Track Record

 From August 2010 to December 2015, she has worked with Flood Management Division in IWM as Junior Engineer.
Since joining IWM in 2011, Md. Shahadat Hossain was involved in number of important water resources projects including Mathematical Modelling. He is specialized in Hydrological and Hydrodynamics Modeling, Weather Research and Forecasting, Local Level Flood Forecasting, Long Range Flood Forecasting, Flash Flood Forecasting based on Satellite and Remote Sensing with MIKE11, MIKE 21FM tools of DHI, Water and Environment and SWAT, HEC_RAS, HEC-HMS. He is also proficient in use of a variety of hydraulic, hydrological, Arc-GIS software, C# programming, Python programming, Unix Shell scripting, Web development etc.
From December 2015 to till date, he is involved in same division as Junior Specialist.


Md. Shahadat Hossain has received specialized training in mathematical modelling on MIKE21FM, Flood Mapping and Data Assimilation, SWAT, Climate Modelling and Downscaling Technique, Environmental Application of Remote Sensing for Water Resources, River Bank Protection and ArcGIS. He also provided training to various professionals on hydrologic, hydrodynamic and Flood Forecasting modelling by using MIKE11 and Weather Forecasting by using WRF Model. He attended a number of national seminars and conferences.
