Dr. Khawar Naveed Abbasi (PhD University of London, UK)


Engr. Dr. Khawar Naveed did BE in Mechanical Engineering from Mehran University. Did M.Sc. Nuclear Engineering, from Quaid-e-Azam University (QAU), Islamabad, and Ph.D. from Imperial College of Science and Technology, London UK.
Before joining CUST, he had experience of over 30 years of Nuclear Power Plant Operation, Maintenance and Design/Engineering. He worked as Director General of, responsible of contract negotiations, project monitoring, of Nuclear Power Projects.
He has taught various subjects of Mechanical Engineering to undergraduate and post graduate students, in different institutions and CUST. He has supervised Masters thesis, and undergraduate projects. Most of the projects addressed the issues related Nuclear Power Plants under operation in Pakistan. He has four publications. Presently he is working on heat pipes, which has emerged as an effective and established thermal solution, particularly in high-heat flux applications and in situations where there is any combination of nonuniform heat loading,
He has also been involved with industrial collaboration. He has been involved in stress analysis of one of the projects of HIT. Various MoUs have been signed with NEECA, HIT, and other industry.
