Designation: Head/Supervisor

Research group head Profile

Noor M. Khan received the B.Sc. degree in electrical engineering from UET, Lahore, Pakistan, in 1998. He held several positions in WorldCall Communications, National Institute of Science and Technical Education (NISTE), and Pakistan Telecommunication Company Limited (PTCL) from 1999 to 2002. In 2002, he joined the School of Electrical Engineering and Telecommunications, University of New South Wales (UNSW), Sydney, Australia, where he completed his Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering in March 2006. From 2006 till now, he held several research and academic positions at UNSW, Australia, Ghulam Ishaq Khan (GIK) Institute of Engineering Sciences and Technology, Pakistan, and Mohammad Ali Jinnah University (M.A.J.U.), Islamabad, Pakistan. Currently, he is working as Professor and Head of Electrical Engineering Department with the Capital University of Science & Technology, Islamabad, Pakistan. He has authored/co-authored more than hundred research publications in reputed international journals, and refereed conferences. He has served as the Chair of the Technical Program Committee in the IEEE International Conference on Emerging Technologies (ICET2012 and ICET2017) organized under IEEE Islamabad Section held in October 2012 and December 2017, respectively. He has also served as the member of the Technical Program Committee in many IEEE conferences. He has successfully supervised the research work of four Ph.D. and more than thirty five MS students. As recognition of his research contributions, he has been awarded Research Productivity Award (RPA) by the Pakistan Council for Science and Technology (PCST) for the years 2011-2012 and 2012-2013. His research interests include smart-antenna systems, wireless-sensor networks, channel characterization and estimation, adaptive multiuser detection, mobile-to-mobile communication systems and physical-channel modeling for mobile communications.

Introduction of the group

Acme Center for Research in Wireless Communications (ARWiC) situated at the Capital University of Science and Technology, Islamabad, has been engaged in outstanding research in the areas of Wireless Communications and Wireless Sensor Networks, since 2007. The group is led by Dr. Noor M. Khan and currently, it comprises of thirteen researchers. The group deployed a Wireless Sensor Networks test bed in 2009 in order to analyze theoretical research ideas with practical field experiments. The test bed is comprised of Sun Microsystem’s SunSPOT sensor kits. The group has published more than 120 research papers in journals and conferences of international repute, since its formation. The group has also maintained collaborative linkages in field of research and development with reputable international research groups. The research interests of the group include Wireless and Cellular Mobile Communication Systems, Physical Channel Modeling, Fading Channel Characterization, Smart Antennas, MIMO systems, Adaptive Signal Processing, Multiuser Detection, Energy Efficient Routing and Node Localization in Wireless Sensor Networks.
