Bio

Dr. Akm Samsur Rahman is serving as Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering at New York City College of Technology, an affiliate of City University of New York. Dr. Rahman’s teaching interest involves computer aided additive and subtractive manufacturing techniques and manufacturing process for the materials that involves geometric and material heterogeneity. His research focuses on the development of processing and fabrication technique of energy efficient geopolymer and glass ceramics that can be tailored into advanced composites and biomedical devices. He is also interested in energy harvesting and storage devices.

Professor Dr. Rahman received his PhD degree in Mechanical Engineering from Colorado State University at Fort Collins in August 2015. Prior to pursing his doctoral studies, he received his MS degree in Mechanical Engineering from Tuskegee University in 2010. Before that, he completed his BS degree in Mechanical Engineering at Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology( BUET) in 2003. He obtained Professional Engineering license (PE) in 2014.
