Abdul Shakoor

Professor

Engineering Geology is applied geologic work that is relevant to the planning, design, construction, operation, and maintenance of engineering structures as well as to the development, protection, and remediation of groundwater and surface water resources. At Kent State University, the focus of the Engineering Geology program is on studies related to the engineering behavior of soils and rocks, slope stability, water resources development projects, evaluation of construction materials, and engineering applications of waste materials. The research in these areas is diverse, inter-disciplinary, and collaborative in nature.
