Bio Brief

Ekramul Haque received his B.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering in 1964 from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology. He received his M.S. in Agrucultural Engineering from Purdue University in 1969. In 1978, he received his Ph.D. in Agricultural Engineering from Kansas State University. He is a licensed Professional Engineer (P.E.) in Kansas since 1982. Dr. Haque's postgraduate training includes Viscose Rayon and Chemicals Processing and Manufacturing in Japan; Grain Elevator Management in USA, Germany, France, Italty, and Greece; and Grain Storage Engineering in Germany and Switzerland.

Dr. Haque served as a Mechanical Engineer and Department Head of an Engineering Division in Karnaphuly Rayon and Chemicals Ltd., Bangladesh giving leadership in a large industrial complex employing about 3,000 people, and manufacturing daily 10 metric tons of rayon fiber and 5 metric tons of cellophane and all needed process chemicals. He subsequently worked as a Grain Elevator Manager of a 100,000 metric ton import grain elevator and as an Acting Director of a 225,000 metric ton grain elevator system under Government of Bangladesh. Before joining as a Kansas State University faculty in 1979, he worked as a Design Engineer of Trico Industries, Inc. in Kansas City designing various grain and liquid storage bins and grain systems.

Dr. Haque also provided international technical assistance in the field of grain storage and processing to various agencies in Bangladesh, Belize, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Haiti, Honduras, Jordan, Pakistan, Peru, Sierra Leone, Sudan, and Tanzania. He taught various courses in the Departments of Biological and Agricultural Engineering and Grain Science. Also, he conducted and taught various grain storage and processing and electricity short courses intended for overseas and domestic trainees.

Dr. Haque’s research interest includes grain processing, storage, and machine development. His invention resulted in three US patents. He is an author/co-author of 25 refereed journal publications, one book chapter, editor of a book, and many other publications. He teaches various undergraduate and graduate courses such as Flow Sheets, Electricity and Control for Grain Processing, Feed Technology, Advanced Grain Processing Technology and short courses.
