Staff profile

Dr Muhammed Waseem Soomro

Position

Academic leader

Teaching area

Mechanical engineering

Biography

Prior to joining MIT, I have worked as a part time design engineer in various industries in New Zealand. Major project involvement were designing of components for Fisher and Paykel. Also, I have considerable work experience in the Automotive and home appliances industries.

I always try to bring my industrial experience to the classroom and teach the students how to apply the engineering principles in practical applications, before they could join to the workforce.

Currently, I am working with industrial partners to provide students with practical research projects.

Qualification

Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Engineering

Master of Engineering (M.Eng.)

Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.)

Industry experience

After completing my B.E. in mechanical engineering, I started my career as a R&D engineer in the Automotive industry.  I came to New Zealand to pursue my PhD in mechanical engineering from AUT university.

I have worked as a part time design engineer in various industries in New Zealand. Major project involvement were designing of components for Fisher and Paykel. Also I have considerable work experience in Automotive and home appliances industry.
