King Fahd University of Petroleum & Minerals

Electrical Engineering Department

Associate Professor

Dr. Sheikh Sharif Iqbal Mitu

 

Academic Qualifications:

 
  • May 92 - Sep 96 : Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering & Electronics.

The University of Manchester (UMIST), Manchester, England.

Ph.D. Thesis : “Applied-field/Frequency Analysis of Gyrotropic Axisymmetric devices.”

A novel way of modeling high power micro/millimeter wave ferrite and semiconductor phase shift and control devices has been investigated. A computer aided design package has been developed to design magnetized ferrite and semiconductor passive devices. Experimentation has been performed on ferrite to corroborate the predicted performance.

 

  • Oct 1990 - Feb 1992 : M.Sc. in Communication Engineering and Digital Electronics.

The University of Manchester (UMIST), Manchester, England.

Major Subjects: Microprocessor Engineering; Microwave Devices & Eng.; Finite Difference Analysis; Digital Signal Processing; Radar Technology; Speech and Image Processing, Communication etc.

M.Sc. Dissertation: “High Power Microwave Frequency Tunable Waveguide Filter.”

The aim of this project was to design and built a tunable microwave filter. An ANSI C software was developed to obtain the predicted performance of a magnetized ferrite disk used in a four port tunable filter. By comparing the calculated and the experimentally obtained data, satisfactory frequency response was observed.

 

  • Apr 1985 - Mar 1990 : B.Sc. (Hon) in Electronics and Communication Engineering.

(University of San Carlos, Cebu, Philippines.)

Major Subjects : Satellite & Digital Communication; Microprocessor & Network systems; Robotics; Broadcast Engineering; Industrial Electronics; Engineering Management; Microwave Propagation & Antennas etc.

B.Sc. Project: “Design and Implementation of a FM Transceiver module.”
