Abdul Mumin has been appointed Assistant Professor of Agricultural Engineering at the University of Arkansas.
Teaches a variety of courses in power and machinery and agricultural production systems.
Mumin is tasked with overseeing UAPB’s major agricultural development projects, machinery and mechanics, construction equipment, power trains, and hydraulic development.
It is also expected to participate in curriculum development, student counseling, international supervision, industry cooperation, student recruitment, evaluation and the development and delivery of industrial training programs. In addition, it seeks assistance opportunities, participates in campus management, and participates in community engagement opportunities.
Mumin’s research interests focus on agriculture and biotechnology, with a focus on agriculture and biotechnology.
After graduating from Davis University in California from 2018 to 2020, he joined the UAPB. There he used biosensing technologies to develop energy-efficient dehumidification systems to reduce agricultural inputs and food shortages.
From 2016 to 2017, he worked as a research fellow at Urbana-Chapani Illinois University, with experience in real-world agricultural technologies in sugarcane production. One of his successes there was the creation of a sugarcane mapping system. Based on GPS-based data collected from harvesters, tractors and summers, the mapping system allows producers to gather information on sugarcane production and characteristics.
As a graduate researcher at North Dakota State University, he worked closely with the Extension Service on a project to use the flood-damaged wooden biomass for six months.
Mumin holds a bachelor’s degree in agricultural engineering from the University of Agricultural Sciences in Maimming, Bangladesh. After graduating, he began teaching college at a university in agricultural engineering.
He taught in various roles for over 10 years and was in charge of student research projects.
In 2013, he received a doctorate from the University of Kyoto in Kyoto, Japan.
The studies focused on post-production processes using bio-survey technology.
As part of his doctoral study, Mumin developed machine vision systems to test fruits and soybeans.
In 2013 and 2015, he received the “Young Researcher Academic Award” from the Japanese Association of Agricultural Machinery and Food Engineers for his work, which provides opportunities for business.
He has published numerous newspaper articles, print and online publications and presentations on proper agricultural systems and agricultural engineering issues.
The University of Agricultural Sciences of Bangladesh has received the Elviser Evaluation Award for Higher Education from the Computer and Electronics Editorial Board and the Prime Minister’s Gold Medal.
Mumin’s professional members include the Institute of Engineers – Bangladesh, the American Association of Agricultural and Biological Engineers, and the Japan Agricultural Machinery Association.
