About Magdy Abdelrahman

Dr. Magdy Abdelrahman, former professor of civil and environmental engineering at North Dakota State University, was named the Missouri Asphalt Pavement Association (MAPA) Endowed Professor in Flexible Pavements at Missouri University of Science and Technology, effective Aug. 1, 2017. The professorship was established through a gift of $550,000 from the Missouri Asphalt Pavement Association.

Dr. Abdelrahman’s research on infrastructure sustainability with a focus on applications of recycled materials in pavement engineering, including modified asphalt binder, represents a unique blend of practical and fundamental research activities. He has written or co-written 100 peer-reviewed publications and technical reports, and he shares a patent on asphalt-rubber interaction, “Elastomer Reclaiming Composition and Method” (US Patent No. 6815510).

Dr. Abdelrahman is associate editor of the American Society of Civil Engineer’s (ASCE) Journal of Materials in Civil Engineering and a board member of two other international journals. He has served nine three-year terms on four national committees of the Transportation Research Board (TRB) and one term on an ASCE committee. “Serving on engineering committees has provided me with insights into the next generation of engineering education and allowed me to link early engineering education to the outcomes of engineering programs.”

Dr. Abdelrahman plans to focus on contributions to new knowledge in the civil engineering discipline through high-quality research and publications; excellence in teaching and curriculum development that provides students with a high level of preparation for professional careers; development of a high degree of program visibility and recognition at the national and international levels; development of program resources and contribution to the research infrastructure of Missouri S&T; and professional services and outreach activities at the national and international levels.

Dr. Abdelrahman earned bachelor of science and master of science degrees in civil engineering from Zagazig University in Egypt in 1983 and 1988, respectively. He earned a Ph.D. in civil engineering at the University of Illinois-Urbana in 1996.
