Dr. Muhammad Amjad Iqbal

Associate Dean

Faculty of Information technology.

I have been teaching for more than seven years at various renowned universities of Pakistan before joining UCP in October 2010. I have completed my PhD (Computer Science) from FAST (Islamabad). A post-doctoral has also been offered and successfully completed at Signal and Image Processing Lab (SIPL),  Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology (GIST), South Korea in 2015. I have supervised various MS and PhD thesis. My major areas of interest include Machine Learning, Fuzzy Logic, Evolutionary Function Optimization, Digital Watermarking, Digital Image Processing, homogeneous and heterogeneous combination of classifiers.
