NUST student interns at German Aerospace Centre (DLR)

​Meet Bilawal Mushtaq, student of Bachelors in Materials Engineering at NUST School of Chemical & Materials Engineering (SCME), who has recently completed his internship at the German Aerospace Centre (DLR), Cologne, Germany. DLR is the national aeronautics and space research centre of the Federal Republic of Germany, and the only place on earth from where the Electromagnetic Levitation experiment on international space station could be directly controlled.

Electromagnetic Levitation is an important experiment in Materials Science and is performed not only on earth under normal gravity conditions, but also on parabolic flights and on Space Station. 


“I was lucky enough to work with the most skilled scientists of the world, and got the opportunity to use high tech equipment in my research work,” said Bilawal. He also visited the European Astronaut Center (ESA) during his stay, which is the home to European astronauts.

The NUST family sends their warmest appreciation to Bilawal Mushtaq & Dr Ahmed, on their research in the container-less solidification of high entropy alloys. We wish them the best in all their future endeavours!
