Summary of Career Profile

A qualified professional civil engineer with experience in Transportation and Highways engineering. He has good practical, training, research and administrative experience acquired over the last 18 years since 1995. Dr. Bagampadde holds a PhD degree in Highway Engineering awarded by the Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden in 2005 and a Masters degree in Highway Engineering which was awarded by the University of Petroleum and Minerals, Dhahran, Saudi Arabia. All these were obtained after he acquired a Bachelors degree in Civil Engineering (First Class Honours) of Makerere University Kampala, Uganda. He is currently a Senior Lecturer and Dean, School of Engineering, College of Engineering, Design, Art and Technology, Makerere University. He is an active Consultant with the university and other firms. Research and Consultancy are carried out mainly in the fields of design and testing of materials (geo and binder materials); structural design of highway pavements and bridges; feasibility study, planning, design and management of highways and streets; environmental impacts of highways/airports and highway pavement drainage. A number of publications have been published regionally and internationally. Several Graduate students have been supervised to completion. He is a registered professional engineer with the Engineer’s Registration Board (ERB) and a corporate member of the Uganda Institution of Professional Engineers (UIPE) in good standing.
