PROFILE SUMMARY

Dr. Majid has an overall ~17½ years of rich teaching, research and professional industry experience with a total of 104 publications including 29 Impact Factor journal papers having cumulative ISI impact factor of >110. HEC Approved PhD Supervisor. Bachelors with GOLD MEDAL, Masters with HIGHEST POSITION and PhD with FIVE IMPACT FACTOR JOURNAL PUBLICATIONS. Past: Structural Design Engineer having ten years of association with NESPAK, one of leading consultants of Pakistan.

Following are his few contributions in field of academics:

  1. At national level
    • He has been a member of curriculum committees at forums of Pakistan Engineering Council and Higher Education Commission Pakistan for updating civil engineering curriculum on outcome-based education. The committee adopted major portion of bachelors of civil engineering curriculum from the course contents he developed at his institute. He also led a sub-committee for developing national curriculum of bachelors of building and architectural engineering.

    • He is in panel of program evaluator at the forum of Pakistan Engineering Council for the accreditation of bachelors of civil engineering at various institutes in Pakistan.

  2. At university and department levels
    • He was among pioneering faculty who established department of civil engineering for bachelor’s program on outcome-based education. In 2018 (i.e., at time of graduation of pioneer batch), only four out of forty departments offering civil engineering bachelor’s program was accredited on outcome-based education. At this time, only department of a private university was accredited on outcome-based education.

    • He was also among pioneering faculty who launched masters and doctorate programs in civil engineering

    • He is convener of University Health, Safety and Security Committee. He introduced health and safety guidelines according to international standards.

  3. At individual level
    • He was included in list of Young Productive Scientists of Pakistan.

    • He chaired two international conferences on sustainability in civil engineering. He is currently chairing the third conference. This has built confidence of local participants to do research of international standards.

    • He has been involved in 100 thesis/projects at bachelors, masters and doctorate levels in role of supervisor, co supervisor or advisor. 50 are as main supervisor.

    • His first PhD student has graduated under his main supervision. Two other students, one in UK and one in China, has also graduated under his co-supervision/advisory.

    • He has more than 100 publications. His cumulative impact factor is more than 110. Citations are more than 1300. h-index is 16 and i10-index is 22.

    • He has reviewed more than 100 papers for ISI impact factor journals of world-renowned publishers. In addition, he has reviewed much more other papers.

    • He contributed a lot to raise the research standards in Pakistan by grooming students. As an example, in 2017, third year civil engineering students were able to publish their work in an international conference (it was first time in 70 years history of Pakistan). In 2020, a final year civil engineering group published their work in an ISI impact factor journal (once again first time in history of Pakistan).

    • He is an active reviewer for many R&D funding proposals etc for National Science Centre Poland, Elsevier (one of the world’s largest publisher), KU Leuven (University of Leuven, Belgium), Higher Education Commission (HEC) Pakistan and Pakistan Science Foundation.
