Dr. Andi Asiz is an Associate Professor and Chair of Civil Engineering Department at Prince Mohammad Bin Fahd University (PMU), Al Khobar, Saudi Arabia. His major expertise is in the area of structural engineering and mechanics. He has more than 15 years of academic and practical experiences in conducting analysis, design, inspection, and monitoring of various engineered structures ranging from reinforced concrete and steel buildings, pre-stressed concrete bridges to timber structures. He has published more than 50 papers and technical reports in refereed journals, international conference proceedings, and government (public) domains. In collaboration with the University of New Brunswick in Canada, he is currently co-supervising and advising doctoral students in structural engineering areas. He obtained PhD degree in civil engineering from the University of Colorado at Boulder, USA. Dr. Asiz is currently registered Professional Engineer (PEng) in the Province of New Brunswick, Canada. He has also been a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) since 1997.

Dr. Asiz current research interest includes structural health monitoring, structural behaviour of hybrid and composite buildings, finite element method and analysis of structural systems and components, sustainable construction technology, energy efficient of building envelopes, and large-scale structural experimentations.

At PMU, he regularly teaches structural analysis, reinforced concrete design, and design of steel structures.
