PhD (Mechatronics) 2015, Italy

Dr. Mubasher Saleem received his B.Sc. Electrical Engg. from University of Engineering and Technology (UET) Lahore (2008), MS in Electronic Engineering from Ghulam Ishaq Khan Institute of Engineering Sciences and Technology (GIKI), Topi (2010) and Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering from Politecnico di Torino, Italy (2015). His PhD research work was related to RF-MEMS design optimization, fabrication, testing and failure analysis for the space applications, in collaboration with Fondazione Bruno Kessler (FBK), Trento, Italy. He has also worked and published in the field of MEMS inertial sensors (Microgroscopes and Microaccelerometers).​
