Dr. Nilo Tsung
Department of Engineering & Technology
Nilo Tsung obtained his BS degree in Construction Engineering from Taiwan National University of Science and Technology. He then attended the University of Colorado at Boulder and earned three advanced degrees there, which are an MS degree in Civil Engineering (Geotechnical Engineering), an MS degree in Computer Science and a Ph.D degree in Civil Engineering (Civil Systems).
Prior to joining Texas A&M University-Commerce, he worked in various capacities including a project engineer for the Taiwan Expressway Bureau, Taichung, Taiwan; a geotechnical engineer for TK Engineering, Alhambra, California; a software engineer for DSC Communications, Plano, Texas; a structural engineer for the PB/MK Team in charge of the design and construction of the Superconducting Super Collider (SSC) project at Waxahachie, Texas; and a visiting researcher for the Public Works Research Institute of Japan's Construction Ministry, Tsukuba, Japan.
His research interests are (1) sustainability of civil infrastructure systems (including green building and LEED), (2) informatics for modeling and managing critical infrastructure systems (e.g. BIM), (3) trenchless technology piping and (4) project control. In addition, he has been involved in the use of emerging information technologies such as wireless sensors, information visualization and virtual reality techniques in infrastructure engineering and management applications.
He is a professional engineer (PE) in civil engineering in Taiwan, Colorado and California. He is also a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE)
