Dr. Imtiaz Haque is Professor and past chair of Mechanical Engineering at Clemson University. He is currently serving as Executive Director of the Carroll A. Campbell Graduate Engineering Center on the CU-ICAR Campus in Greenville SC. His teaching and research interests lie in the general areas of dynamics, vibrations, mechanisms and machines, and manufacturing process simulation. He has been involved with the modeling and simulation of vehicular systems since 1975.

Professor Haque is a Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and a member of the Society of Automotive Engineers. He has been a member of the ASME Applied Mechanics Transportation Committee, and was a founding member of the ASME Material Division Committee on Metal Forming. He has served as Guest Editor for the International Journal of Vehicle Design and is a member of the Editorial Board for the International Journal of Heavy Vehicle Systems. He was Vice Chairman of the ASME Design Division Committee on Vehicle Design from 1998-2006.

Dr. Haque has conducted research for and served as consultant to private industry and federal agencies. In 1996-97 he spent his sabbatical year at the BMW Research and Engineering Center in Munich, Germany.

Dr. Haque has published over 100 refereed journal and conference papers. He serves as reviewer for numerous journals, conferences, and funding agencies.
