Academic Chronology

Mr. Rahman graduated in Civil Engineering from BIT, Chittagong in 1985 and obtained M. Sc. Degree in Hydroinformatics with distinction from IHE, Delft, the Netherlands in 1999.

Professional Track Record

Mr. Rahman began his career as a planning engineer with the Engineering and Planning Consultants Ltd. in 1986. He was involved in the feasibility study of different flood control, drainage and irrigation projects between 1986 to 1990. In 1990, he joined SWMC as a consultant. Thereafter, Mr. Rahman was engaged in the application of advanced mathematical modelling techniques in the field of planning and design of water resources development and management projects and flood forecasting.


Mr. Rahman received specialized training in flood modelling, two-dimensional and sediment transport modelling at the Danish Hydraulic Institute, Denmark. His research interests include physically-based modelling (uncertainty and numerical aspects), sub-symbolic modelling techniques and data mining. He has carried out research in the analysis and prediction of chaotic timeseries.
