Prof. Kang is a Professor of architectural engineering at Seoul National University (SNU), and a licensed Professional Engineer (P.E.) in California, U.S.A. Prior to joining SNU in 2011, he was an Assistant Professor of civil engineering at the University of Oklahoma, Norman for 4 years and worked as a consulting engineer in California for 3 years. He received his Ph.D. from UCLA, his M.S. from Michigan State University, and his B.S. from SNU. Prof. Kang’s research and teaching interests encompass a number of subjects relating to the design, repair and materials of structural concrete. He is also a Fellow of the American Concrete Institute (ACI) and the Post-Tensioning Institute (PTI). In 2009 and 2013, he received prestigious awards of Wason Medal for Most Meritorious Paper from ACI and Kenneth B. Bondy Award for the Most Meritorious Paper from PTI, respectively, as Lead Author.


My goal is to serve as a faculty member of architectural engineering by continuing to work on practical research in the area of concrete design and materials; to serve my students by teaching, inspiring, and leading them to achieve their desired outcomes; and to serve the national and international community by providing a wide array of professional services.
