Timeline of Alphose Zingoni


Zingoni is the director of the Klaus-Jürgen Bathe Leadership Programme. of the University of Cape Town, established in 2014 through a gift donated by Klaus-Jürgen Bathe, an alumnus of UCT. The primary goal of the Programme is “to produce graduates with outstanding leadership qualities and a strong sense of social justice, who will go on to play leading and significant roles in business, government, industry and civil society in South Africa and on the African continent”


To promote closer cooperation between academics, researchers and practitioners, Zingoni founded the Structural Engineering, Mechanics and Computation (SEMC) series of international conferences at the turn of the millennium. To date, he has organised and chaired seven SEMC conferences at intervals of three years: SEMC 2001, SEMC 2004, SEMC 2007, SEMC 2010, SEMC 2013, SEMC 2016 and SEMC 2019. These events have brought to South Africa participants from countries around the world. The associated peer-reviewed Proceedings appear in the section on Books and edited volumes.

Zingoni has served on the editorial boards of a number of international engineering journals. He has also guest-edited six special issues of international journals, and has served as the editor of the Proceedings of the International Conferences on Structural Engineering, Mechanics and Computation (SEMC), held in Cape Town every three years since 2001.


In the area of thin-shell structures, Zingoni has pursued an analytical approach in studying shells of revolution, and developed closed-form results for a variety of problems. His work has contributed to the understanding of the behaviour of engineering shell structures. Zingoni’s most significant work in this area is the book “Shell Structures in Civil and Mechanical Engineering”, first published in 1997 by Thomas Telford Ltd (Institution of Civil Engineers). The second edition of this book was published in 2018 by ICE Publishing, and has received favourable reviews.


Zingoni returned to Zimbabwe in 1994, where he took up appointment with the University of Zimbabwe, and served as Dean of the Faculty of Engineering from 1997 for three years. In 1999, he moved to South Africa to take up appointment with the University of Cape Town, and was inaugurated as Professor of Structural Engineering and Mechanics in 2002. He served as Head of the Department of Civil Engineering at UCT for five years from 2008 to 2012.


In 1992, Zingoni was awarded a Research Fellowship of the Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851. He was elected a Fellow of the Institution of Structural Engineers in 2005, a Fellow of the South African Academy of Engineering in 2008., and a Fellow of the International Association for Bridge and Structural Engineering (IABSE) in 2011. In 2005, Zingoni was elected a Member of the Academy of Science of South Africa (ASSAf). In 2016, he was elected a Fellow of the University of Cape Town. In 2019, he was a joint recipient of the UCT Book Award for his book “Shell Structures in Civil and Mechanical Engineering”


Born in the Masvingo Province of Zimbabwe, Zingoni attended high school at St. Ignatius College in Harare, Zimbabwe, where he completed A Levels in 1980. After earning a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering at the University of Zimbabwe in 1984, and working in industry for three years, he went to Imperial College London in the United Kingdom, where he earned an MSc degree in structural engineering in 1988, and a PhD degree in 1992. His PhD thesis was on the bending of non-shallow spherical shells. In 1992, Zingoni was one of six recipients of a Research Fellowship of the Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851. Between 1992 and 1994, he pursued postdoctoral research at Imperial College London, where he began using group theory in studying problems involving symmetry in structural mechanics.


Alphose Zingoni (born 1962) is a Zimbabwean–South African engineer and professor of structural engineering and mechanics in the Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Cape Town, and founder of the Structural Engineering, Mechanics & Computation (SEMC) series of international conferences.
