Dr. Mohammad Javed Hyder
During the last 36 years of service at PIEAS, I have dedicated my career for promoting excellence in academic and research. As Director ORIC, I have organized the National and International Level Summits and symposia with a gathering of more than 600 participants including around 30 foreigners. Also I lead the PIEAS Shell Eco-Marathon Teams in 2015 held in Manila, Philippines and one of our team secured the second runner up position in Asia. I organized TEDx PIEAS in 2016, 2017, and 2018. I have taught around fifty different subject during my career in PIEAS, which is a world record. I was nominated by Rector PIEAS for Sitara-i-Imtiaz in 2018 and Pride of Performance in 2009. Best University Teacher award was received in 2010 from HEC and PIEAS Performance Gold Medal in 2008 from Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission. Also I was awarded Tamgha-e-Baka in 1998. I was shortlist for the interview of Rector PIEAS in 2009 and 2016.
While serving at PIEAS I have performed various managerial duties in different capacities. Dean Faculty of Engineering during 2011 to 2014, Head Department of Mechanical Engineering during 2006 to 2009. During 2007 to 2008 also performed the additional duty of Dean of Faculty of Engineering. I worked as Head Department of Information and Public Relation from 2000 to 2003. From time to time I have been either the convener or member of various committees formed to address day to day issues of the institute. I prepared the summary submitted to the Cabinet for the grant of degree awarding status to the PIEAS. As an expert from time to time peer reviewed PC-I of development projects submitted to HEC. I am a member of National Curriculum Revision Committee of HEC in the field of Mechanical Engineering.
I developed and launched the BSc, MS and PhD programs of Mechanical Engineering. I was involved in the Senior Officers Management Course (SOMC), Advance Management Course (AMC), and Basic Management Course (BM) as an expert to train the participants in the area of Leadership skills, negotiation skills, problem solving, creative thinking, engineering design and R&D management, etc. for the promotion of officers from 18 to 19 and from 19 to 20 grade in the strategic organizations.
I have developed about five new laboratories at PIEAS and supervised experiments in nine laboratories. Throughout my career I have studied on scholarship. I am the first scholar to leave for higher studies on MOST scholarship in 1986, for this I toped the examination and the interview held by the PAEC. I completed PhD in a very short period of three years and nine months from RPI, USA, where generally the time span is five years or more.
I have studied 39 graduate level courses (117 credit hrs). I have supervised more than 175 MS/ MPhil theses and 33 BSc (four year)/ MSc final year projects/ theses. I have published one chapter in international book. I am supervising three PhD students and two have completed PhD. I have published 47 articles in international/ national journals/ conference with an impact factor above 30. As mentioned above, have taught around 50 different subjects.
My field of interest in mechanical behaviour of materials, mechanical system design and development, Computational engineering, turbo-machinery design and development, internal combustion engine, and thermodynamics. Although I can teach most of the subject in the field of mechanical engineering but most interested subjects which I prefer to teach are mechanics of material, machine design, finite elements methods, computational engineering, mechanical behaviour of material, thermodynamics, and turbomachinery.
