Education and Working Experience

Yizhou Zhuang, born in China, a Canadian, is now a Distinguished Professor of Fuzhou University. He earned a bachelor degree in Civil Engineering from East China Jiaotong University in 1986 and a Master degree in Structural Engineering from Taiyuan University of Technology in 1986. Then he worked there as a lecturer. In 1992, he started to study as a PhD candidate in Dalian University of Technology and gained his first PhD in Structural Engineering in 1996. After the graduation, he moved to Zhejiang University as a post doctor for two years’ duration. After that, he had been working there as an associate professor till 2003 he migrated to Canada. During his stay in North America, he worked as an EIT in Michigan, USA and a P.Eng in Ontario, Canada, and also earned his 2nd PhD majoring in Bridge Engineering in Wayne State University (USA) in 2007. He came back to China in 2010. He is now is a full time professor of Fuzhou University.
