Dr. Ken P. Chong (Chinese 張建平) is a Professor at The George Washington University and an associate at the National Institute of Science and Technology (NIST).[1] He was the Engineering Advisor, Interim Division Director and program director of Mechanics and Materials for 21 years at the U.S. National Science Foundation.[1] He has published over 200 refereed papers,[2] and is the author or coauthor of twelve books including "Elasticity in Engineering Mechanics",[3]"Elasticity in Engineering Mechanics". Retrieved 9 September 2011. , “Intelligent Structures”,[4] “Modeling and Simulation-Based Life Cycle Engineering”,[5] and “Materials for the New Millennium”.[3][6] He has taught at the University of Wyoming, University of Hong Kong and the University of Houston, and had been visiting professor at MIT and University of Washington.[3][7]

Chong grew and obtained high school education at the Queen Elizabeth School, Hong Kong. He pursued higher education for the B.S. degree in Civil Engineering with major in Structures at the Taiwan National Cheng Kung University, and M.S. degree for Structural Mechanics at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. He also obtained advanced degrees at Princeton University: M.A., M.S. in Engineering, and completed the Ph.D. in Engineering Mechanics, 1969.[2] After that he received post-doctoral management training at the Federal Executive Institute, for senior federal executives, Class 221, 1996.

His biographical profile is cited in the American Men and Women of Science[8] and in 2008 he was elected a Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME).[2] He is also a fellow of AAM, SEM and ASCE.[7]
