Dr. Shahid Saghir is currently working as assistant professor and chairman of the ME department at University of Management and Technology, Lahore, Sialkot campus. The department under his leadership has achieved many milestones, and got accreditation with Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC). He’s a PhD in Mechanical Engineering from KAUST with both research and industry experience. His research work consist on modeling, simulation, and testing of the Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) structures. He also has working experience on composites and heterogeneous materials’ development and testing in COHMAS Laboratory of KAUST. He has developed a strong background in Engineering Mechanics and Multiphysics modeling with Mathematica and COMSOL.
