Rabiul Ahasan, PhD
Professor, Department of Industrial Safety & Ergonomics
Universiti Sultan Zainal Abidin, Saudi Arabia
After failure of establishing a community college in Winnipeg (www.cbc.ca/news/canada/manitoba/residents-concerned-about-school-s-future-1.866425), Dr. Ahasan initiated a rural development project in B'desh paired with multiple community services (www.gramweb.net/village_content/source/social_development_activities.php?id=81&lid=13&mid=11). His failure and success never stop him for travelling around and getting knowledge of hardship. In 2001, he left Finland with Scandinavian memories of loss & gain (www.oulu.fi/industrialengineering/personnel/rabiul-ahasan). In 2002, he was funded for conducting postdoc training (www.irsst.qc.ca/media/magazines/v18_02/27.pdf) on prolonged sitting dynamics at École Polytechnique de Montreal (www.irsst.qc.ca/en/scholarships/recipients/recipient/i/640/n/ahasan-rabiul-2003-640). In 2004, he delivered lecturers as SafetyNet Chair at Memorial University (http://today.mun.ca/event.php?id=922). In 2010, his application for rezoning his college property in Canada (http://clkapps.winnipeg.ca/dmis/ViewPdf.asp?ocID=9624&SectionId=235743&isMobile=yes) was appeared for public hearing. Later on, he was summoned for attending as a JUROR at the Sittings of Her Majesty's Court of Queens Bench in Manitoba for the trial of criminal matters. As an academic, Dr. Ahasan taught human factors at U_Concordia, workplace safety at U_Manitoba & BUHS (Dhaka). He is affiliated with Oulu University (Finland), Lincoln University College (Selangor) & AIUB (https://engg.aiub.edu/faculties/rabiul). As a consultant, he attended meetings for initiating biomedical engineering program at JUST (www.eduicon.com/News/Details/8504.html). For sometime, he was looking after operational errors of 6-share core cutting machine, and conducting safety audits at EnergyPac Engineering Ltd. In 2016, Dr Ahasan was invited to join as a visiting professor of Monash University (Australia) for evaluating pilot seating in military aircraft. In 2017, his offer to join as a full professor at King Abdulaziz University ended up with no joining due to delayed authentication process of his credentials. Other than teaching undergraduate courses & supervisory of graduate interns, he is currently on the scientific & accreditation committee of KSU's Department of Industrial Engineering. His research group (RG 1441-445) has been approved by KSU's Deanship of Research. His previous research projects (www.tsr.fi/valmiit-hankkeet/hanke?h=100195) can be viewed at http//www.tsr.fi/valmiit-hankkeet/hanke?h=100195.
