Dr. Umar Shahbaz Khan did his bachelor’s in Mechatronics Engineering from college of Electrical and Mechanical Engineering, National University of Sciences and Technology in 2005. After graduating he served in Siemens for nine months as an engineer and during this short period he was actively involved in many national level projects. In 2006 he left for his PhD to University of Liverpool UK under NUST faculty development scholarship. He completed his PhD in 2010 at a young age of 28 years and was the first of his batch to return to the country. During his PhD he published a book titled “Interpretation of Ground Penetrating Radar Data for Utilities”, which is now available in the market and online stores. Currently he is serving as Assistant Professor at Department of Mechatronics, NUST College of E&ME and is actively involved in undergrad and post grade level teaching and research.
