Dr. Mahmoodul Haq
Dr. Mahmoodul Haq is an Associate Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) at Michigan State University (MSU). He leads the group on ‘Tailorable Materials and Multi-material Assemblies,’ at the Composite Vehicle Research Center (CVRC) at MSU. He obtained his MS and PhD in the area of ‘Structural Engineering and Mechanics of Materials’ in CEE at MSU. He was awarded the governor’s gold medal for securing the top place among ~2000 students in the B.S degree in University of Madras, India. He also holds Adjunct Professor positions in the departments of Chemical Engineering and Material Science, Electrical and Computer Engineering and Mechanical Engineering at MSU. He has research grants exceeding US $10.0 Million, holds 9 patents, and has 40+ peer-reviewed articles, 200+ conference papers, and 25+ invited talks on the aforementioned research topics. Dr. Haq and his colleague Dr. Udpa were recently awarded a $45 Million (5 year, $9M a year) grant from US Congress / US Army Ground Vehicle Systems Center (GVSC) to create an all-electric, all-terrain, autonomous composite vehicle. His research includes funding from U.S. Army Tank Ground Vehicle Systems Center (GVSC, formerly TARDEC), U.S. Army Research Lab (ARL), Office of Naval Research (ONR), U.S. Department of Energy (DoE), US National Science Foundation (NSF) and American Chemistry Council (ACC). His research interests include multi-material joining, non-destructive evaluation (NDE), multi-scale reinforced hybrid/tailorable composites, sustainable and green composites, and computational simulation of materials and structures.
