Telecommunication Engineering / Optical Communication

PhD (Telecomm Engineering / Optical Communication) from The University of Sheffield, UK

​Abdul Rauf graduated from the National University of Sciences and Technology (NUST), Pakistan in 1998 in Electrical Engineering (Telecommunication). He subsequently received a MSc from the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), Denmark in 2004 in Telecommunication Engineering. Following his MSc he has been lecturer at NUST. He joined NUST again in Sep 2011 after completing PhD from University of Sheffield, UK. The title of his Phd research project was "Optical health monitoring of composites using self-sensing E-glass fibre waveguides". ​​​​
