Mamunur Rashid has been Lecturer in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Massachusetts at Lowell since Fall 2013. Prior joining to UMass Lowell, he taught at Georgia Southern University (GSU) and University of Southern Indiana during 2006-2013.
He has held several engineering positions throughout his career including, a Technical Support Engineer with Environmental Modeling Systems Inc. (South Jordan, Utah), a Project Engineer with Ward Engineering Group (Salt Lake City, Utah), an Associate Engineer/Planner with Nolte Associates (Salt Lake City, Utah), and a Design Engineer with RBF Consulting in Irvine, California. His industry experiences include water and waste-water engineering, sewerage system design and planning, water conservation planning, water resource engineering, hydrology, and storm-water management and planning, to name a few.
