CAREER SUMMARY
Dr. Zaman has over twenty two years of professional experience working in civil, building and environmental engineering, hydrodynamic and water quality studies, water and wastewater engineering. Dr. Zaman’s interests and expertise include six problem areas: (1) 3D Structural Analysis & Design Engineering for steel, concrete, timber, aluminum, and cold-formed steel design of virtually any structure including residential, commercial, and industrial buildings, culverts, petrochemical plants, tunnels, bridges, piles, and much more (2) Urban waste waters – treatment for use in steam and power generation (3) Physical, chemical, biological and tertiary treatment of wastewater (4) Treatment and management of metal-contaminated waters and wastes (5) Bioremediation and (6) Industrial waste management. He worked for about four years with URS Corporation Tallahassee, Fl, as a civil engineer. His ties with URS date back to 1995 when he worked with Woodward-Clyde International. Dr. Zaman has alternated work and academic pursuits. In 2006, his dissertation at Concordia University dealt with the treatment of groundwater contaminated with arsenic and organic material. Dr. Zaman has been applying his expertise to numerous projects including surface water and deep sea Geo-hazard modeling amongst others. He has used programming languages FORTRAN and MATLAB for implementing numerical methods. He is also experienced in the application of standard process-based transport models including the SMS models FESWMS, RMA2 & 4, ADCIRC, M2D, StormNET, XPSWMM, the HEC suite of models, as well as AutoCAD Architecture, GIS, STAAD Pro, STAAD Foundation Advanced, Mathcad and Microsoft Office programs. Dr.Zaman is a licensed professional engineer in Ontario. He is a certified Associate Project Manager. He is experienced in both academic and work place curriculum development. He has been responsible for delivering various work-related subject specific, technical and job specific training.
