Prof. Said Easa

Ryerson University, Canada


Professor Said Easa is currently Professor of Civil Engineering, Ryerson University, Canada. He received his B.Sc. degree from Cairo University (Egypt) in 1972, M.Eng. degree from McMaster University (Canada) in 1976, and Ph.D. degree from University of California at Berkeley (U.S.) in 1982. He has served as Director of Quality Assurance of the Faculty of Engineering at Ryerson University (2010-2013), where he introduced the new accreditation system for graduate attributes. Prior to joining Ryerson University in 2000, he had taught at Lakehead University, Canada (1982-2000). Dr. Easa is Fellow of Canadian Academy of Engineering, Engineering Institute of Canada, and Canadian Society for Civil Engineering (CSCE). His research interests cover broad transportation areas, including planning, design, operation, and management. In particular, he has introduced novel approaches for safer and more efficient transportation infrastructure, including highway alignments, railway crossings, interchanges, intersections, and roundabouts. In addition, he has conducted multidisciplinary research in such areas as intelligent transportation systems, autonomous and connected vehicles, human factors, and geomatics engineering.

Dr. Easa published nearly 300 refereed journal articles and was editor of a bestselling book on Urban Planning and Development Applications of GIS, published by American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). He served as President of Online Network Enabled ITS Research Society (ONE-ITS) (2015-2017). He is Associate Editor of Journal of Transportation Engineering, Journal of Surveying Engineering, and Canadian Journal of Civil Engineering. He was leader of a national delegation to China, judge for annual Canadian Consulting Engineering awards, and member of national grant selection committees. He organized and chaired eight national and international conferences, sponsored by ASCE, CSCE, and IAAM. He has received numerous lifetime achievement awards and honors from Canadian, U.S., and other organizations, including Frank M. Masters Transportation Engineering Award from ASCE (2001), Sandford Fleming Award from CSCE (2003), Arthur M. Wellington Prize from ASCE (2005), Award of Academic Merit from Transportation Association of Canada (2010), and IAAM Medal from the International Association for Advanced Materials (2018).
