Dr. Salah Uddin

  • Dr Salah Uddin was appointed as Lecturer in the Department of Civil Engineering at the Balochistan University of Engineering and Technology (BUET), Khuzdar in 2007. Prior to the current appointment, Dr Salah served for two year at BUET as Assistant Professor on Deputation from Communication and Works department, Government of Balochistan, where he held the position of Assistant District Officer for one year. Dr. Salah completed his M.E. in structural engineering from NED UET Karachi in 2004 and his BE from BUET, Khuzdar in 2001. He was awarded scholarship in November 2007 under faculty developing program of HEC, Pakistan for PhD from University of Nottingham, United Kingdom. He was awarded PhD in 2012 on his thesis titled "Behavior of Fibre Reinforced Cemented Sand at High Pressures". Dr. Salah was appointed as Associate Professor in November 2012 and currently serving as Chairman of civil engineering department.
