Mr. Junaid Ahmed is a control systems engineer and researcher working in the area of Modern Control Systems and Computational Intelligence. He recently graduated from NC State University, USA on Fulbright Scholarship program. During his program he worked on a number of projects related to Digital Controls, Autonomous Vehicles, Prosthetic Arm Development, Machine Learning and has done studies related to Bionics.
Prior to joining Habib University, he worked at FFC as an Instrumentation and Control Systems trainee engineer. At FFC, he gained vast exposure to Process Control, Field Instrumentation, Distributed Control Systems (DCS) and Gas Turbines (I&C). One of his achievements during his industrial experience was to work on an onsite project in which he designed an in-house built control system to replace an outdated controller which saved significant cost to the company.
He is a passionate instructor and enjoys teaching and mentoring students. In the past, he also worked at PAF-Karachi Institute of Economics and Technology as a Graduate Teaching Fellow. He joined Habib University as a Lecturer in Electrical Engineering to pursue his passion of teaching and research by working with young minds to contribute towards the stream of modern innovation and technology.
