Dr. Muhammad Shoaib Arif is an associate professor at the department of Avionics Engineering, College of Aeronautical Engineering (CAE) National University of
Sciences& Technology (NUST) Pakistan. He completed his undergraduate studies from CAE Risalpur in 1999, in the specialty of Avionics Engineering. After graduation, he served Pakistan Air Force as an Engineering Officer for 07 years. In this tenure, he supervised I-level maintenance facilities for PAF combat aircraft Avionics, Navigational Aids, Ground-Air and Ground-Ground communication systems. He also played active role in several aircraft avionics modification teams.  He received his MS and PhD degrees from Purdue University, USA in 2009 and 2012 respectively. His graduate research area was design, fabrication, testing and evaluation of RF MEMS devices with a special emphasis on high-Q and widely tunable micro-fabricated resonators and filters.
