Education & CareerEdit

Pande grew up in India and obtained Bachelor of Technology in Civil Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur in 1959. Thereafter he studied at University of Wales now called as Swansea University from where he received PhD and DSc degrees.[3]

Professor Pande joined Department of Civil Engineering of University of Wales now called as Swansea Universityin 1975 as lecturer and was awarded 'Personal Chair' in 1991.

In 1985 he founded the prestigious Computational Geomechanics journal, Computers & Geotechnics as its Editor. He is the founder President of International Centre for Computational Engineering (IC2E), an organisation which has been instrumental in setting up of research and collaborations between Universities and industry.[4]

He is currently Emeritus Professor at Swansea University and is Fellow of Institution of Civil Engineers.[3]
