Dr. Iqbal holds a PhD in Electrical Engineering from the University of Engineering and Technology (UET), Lahore. He was a Fullbright research scholar at USC from 1992-93. He has also worked as DAAD research fellow at Stuttgart Institute of Parallel and Distributed Computing and as a Research Assistant in ICASE, NASA Langlay Research Center, and Hampton, Virginia. He has previously taught at UET, LUMS and now is a professor at SEECS- NUST. Presently his work is focused on understanding how technology can be used to overcome learning and reaching problems. He is also the author of a book on Graph Theory and Algorithms (Google Books)
