About Dr. Hasan

Dr. Hasan currently holds the position of Associate Professor and Head of Department of Apparel Manufacturing & Technology at BGMEA University of Fashion & Technology (BUFT), Bangladesh.

Dr. Hasan received his doctorate (PhD in Textile Engineering) in 2016 from Donghua University of China. He has been working in research and higher education for the last ten years. His research interests include smart materials, shape memory polymers, advanced composite materials, nano-composite materials, CNTs and graphene nano sheets, multi-functional composite materials, high performance textiles, finite element analysis & simulations, storage materials of different gases, recovery technology of resources, management of solid waste and wastewater, life-cycle analysis, effluent treatment, reuse of wastewater, sustainable development, sustainability in textile value chain, green manufacturing, etc.

Dr. Ikbal is a highly motivated individual and has been very successfully coordinating few EU projects (HEST-Germany, REMC-GIZ, Germany) at BUFT. He successfully coordinated the Danish funded Step Up+ Project in collaboration with Danida, DM&T and Sociability of Denmark. He is the Additional Director of Institutional Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) at BUFT.
