Ms. Shume Akhter did her graduation in Water Resource Engineering from BUET in April 2003 and later completed M.Sc Engg (on River Morphology) in same University.
Ms. Shume Akhter has around 11 yearsâ€™ experiences in the field of Water Resources Engineering. During her professional career at Institute of Water Modelling she has worked on Coastal and river morphology, dredging on river, hydrodynamic and hydraulic, and salinity intrusion in the coastal area. She is experienced in the data collection plan for morphological analysis of river and estuary, develop baseline condition of hydraulic and erosion process of the estuary and tidal river based on the data, model results and satellite imagery. She has worked on application of morphological model using MIKE FM for the developed options and different combination of options in order to improvement of navigation, planning & design of effective dredging alignment, assessment of capital & maintenance dredging volume, assessment of maintenance dredging volume and frequency, selection of suitable location for disposal of dredged spoils. Also in forecast of sedimentation and erosion of tidal rivers for short and medium term using mathematical modeling technique, land reclamation and selection appropriate locations for the cross-dam, determined design hydraulic parameters, prepared monitoring plan; she is contribution in report preparation too.
Ms. Shume Akhter has participated in lot of trainings as resource person as well as trainee in country of Bangladesh. She has attended a number of National and International Seminars and Conferences in country and aboard and has some publications to his credit on mathematical modelling.
