Yuhan Jiang

Associate Professor


Dr. Yuhan Jiang is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Built Environment at North Carolina A&T State University. Previously, he worked as an Assistant Professor at South Dakota State University for one year. He has a Ph.D. degree in Civil Engineering from Marquette University. His research focuses on Drones, AI, BIM, GIS, and AR/VR integration in Construction Operations, Building, and Infrastructural Facility Management.

Research Interests

Dr. Yuhan Jiang's current research focuses on artificial intelligence (AI) in architecture, engineering, construction, and operations (AECO), including robotics and remote sensing-based data collection, computer vision and machine learning-based data processing, as well as BIM, GIS, and AR/VR-based data visualization, to enable more efficient and effective construction operations, building inspection, and infrastructure management.
Additionally, Dr. Jiang has extensive experience in community redevelopment planning and complex systems simulation. His prior research investigated the formation mechanisms of urban villages and developed a system dynamics model to simulate different redevelopment strategies for sustainable urbanization.
