Bryan Hubbard is a Professor at Purdue University where he teaches courses in estimating, design construction integration and industrial construction. Bryan' s research interests include design construction integration, drone use in construction, construction safety, sustainability and industrial construction. Bryan was Head of the School of Construction Management Technology from 2013 to 2016 where he oversaw the creation of the Design Construction Integration Major that focuses on trans-disciplinary studies across all areas of the built environment. He also headed up a curriculum transformation to incorporate real world construction projects at every level. 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 has 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.
