Charles Nnamdi Ezugwu acquired Bachelor of Engineering degree at former Anambra State University of Technology (ASUTECH), Enugu in 1986. Also, obtained Master of Engineering degree (Water Resources) and Doctor of Philosophy degree (Water Resources), both in Department of Civil Engineering, Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, Nigeria in 2006 and 2013 respectively.

He is currently a Reader in the department of Civil Engineering of Alex Ekwueme Federal University Ndufu Alike (AE-FUNAI), Ebonyi State, Nigeria and presently Deputy Dean of Faculty of Engineering and Technology. He was the Head of department of Civil Engineering for three consecutive sessions (2017/2018, 2018/2019 and 2019/2020) in AE-FUNAI, and was the Deputy Dean of Faculty of Engineering for 2020/2021 session. Having a background in Water Resources, he has been teaching courses in the area at undergraduate and postgraduate levels in Universities and has external examining experience in the area of Civil Engineering in academic institutions. Consequently, he has supervised many postgraduate works. He joined Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University, Uli in 2007.

He has published widely in many reputable impact factor journals with his publications accessible in Google Scholar. He is a member of the Nigerian Society of Engineers (NSE)
