College of Engineering names Hossain to department head position

By Mary Rankin

Mustaque Hossain

Mustaque Hossain, professor of civil engineering, has been appointed department head of civil engineering at Kansas State University.

He had fulfilled the duties of interim department head since August 2017, when then-head Robert Stokes returned to his faculty position in the College of Engineering, later retiring.

Hossain joined the department in 1991. In addition to his teaching and research in the area of highway materials and pavement engineering, he also served as associate director of the Mid-America Transportation Center from 2006-2016. He is the Munger professor in civil engineering at Kansas State University.

"I look forward to working with Mustaque as we seek to move the civil engineering department toward further excellence," said Darren Dawson, dean of the College of Engineering.
