Excellence in thought leadership to equip future civil engineers

Providing education and research excellence in the areas of structural engineering, geomechanics, wind and environmental engineering, project management, complex systems, transportation and humanitarian engineering.

Our school is at the forefront of civil engineering education. Our systems approach to teaching allows students to graduate with the much sought-after design, research and problem-solving skills needed to create and manage sustainable built and natural environments.

Our project management program equips students with knowledge of the key interdependencies operating in project management and leadership frameworks, and how best to engage with these dynamics to develop proactive and effective planning, management and leadership strategies.

Our research strengths lie in structural engineering, geomechanics, fluids, transport and complex systems. Our expertise and facilities continue to meet the issues associated with sustainability, climate change, water management and the natural environment.

A long tradition of engagement with industry has led to successful collaborations with Arup, BlueScope and RMS, while our excellence in analytical and experimental research has played a prominent role in the development of Australian Standards® relating to structural design.

Dr Cao Hung PHAM

Dr Cao Hung PHAM is Senior Lecturer in Structural Engineering at School of Civil Engineering, the University of Sydney. He was awarded a Ph.D on Cold-Formed Steel Structures from School of Civil Engineering at the University of Sydney in 2010. He also held a Bachelor of Civil Engineering with first class Honours in Structural Engineering at the University of Architecture – HoChiMinh City, Vietnam in 2000. Subsequently, he obtained both Master of Construction Management and Master of Engineering Science in Structural Engineering at the University of New South Wales in 2003 and 2004 respectively. From 2011 to 2015, he was awarded the prestigious ARC Australian Postdoctoral Fellowship on the development of newly developed Direct Strength Method for Cold-Formed Steel Structures under combined actions. He joined the lecturing staff of School of Civil Engineering at the University of Sydney as Lecturer since 2013 and Senior Lecturer in 2018.

 

Dr Pham’s main research areas are theoretical and experimental structural behaviours and designs with particular interest in steel structural members and systems, cold-formed steel structures, aluminium structures and structural stability and analysis. He teaches advanced steel structures and supervises about 7 PhD and 1 MPhil students. He was successful in 2 ARC Discovery Projects and 1 ARC Linkage Project with BlueScope Steel.
