Dr. Saeed joined as an Associate Professor in the Department of Civil Engineering, UAP in May, 2016. Prior to the joining at UAP he worked as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Civil Engineering, Ahsanullah University of Science and Technology from April 2011- April 2016.  Dr Saeed received his B.Sc. degree in Civil Engineering from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET), M.Sc. in Environmental Engineering from Asian Institute of Technology (AIT), Thailand, and PhD in Civil Engineering from Monash University, Australia. Dr. Saeed is specialized on the fate and mathematical modelling of pollutants removal from wastewater. Dr. Saeed had published many peer reviewed publications on pollutant removal dynamics in constructed wetland systems. He is also serving as the reviewer of peer reviewed international journals such as: Science of the Total Environment, Chemical Engineering Journal, Chemosphere, Ecological Engineering, and Water Research.  Dr. Saeed is the lead author of a text book Environmental Sanitation, Wastewater Treatment and Disposal (published by University Grants Commission of Bangladesh), that is often followed as a text/ reference book at undergraduate/postgraduate levels to cover environmental engineering course curricula in different national and international technical universities.


Dr. Saeed received many research and academic awards. These include book author reception award by the University Grants Commission of Bangladesh in the year 2016, University Grants Commission (UGC) Award in the year 2013 for best research in Engineering and Technology, AIT fellowship during his MSc studies at AIT, Faculty of Engineering Post Graduate Award, Monash Graduate Scholarship, and Monash Travel Grant Award while pursuing his PhD studies at Monash University. Dr. Saeed is the pioneer of introducing constructed wetland systems in Bangladesh, to provide treatment of wastewaters and polluted surface waters.
