Bryan Hubbard is an Associate Professor in the Building Construction and Management (BCM) Program at Purdue University where he teaches courses in plan reading, estimating, and industrial construction. Bryan' s research interests include construction safety, industrial and nuclear construction, and workforce training. He has received research grants from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) to further research in the area of construction safety and also from the Department of Labor to promote construction worker safety training. Prior to working in BCM, Bryan worked at Purdue in the Civil Engineering Department and the Construction Engineering and Management Program teaching and working with industry.
Prior to coming to Purdue, Bryan worked as an engineer in industry, with design and construction experience in the United States and Europe, including large scale projects in the power industry. Bryan was the lead inventor on a new process for water purification and desalination in industrial cooling systems and holds two patents. Bryan received his Ph.D. in civil engineering from Texas A& M University and his master's (MSE) and bachelor's degrees (BSME) from Purdue University, and is licensed as a professional engineer in the State of Indiana.
