Dr. Fahd Nawaz Khan

Assistant Professor

Qualifications: PhD(Northumbria University, UK)
Research Interests: machining of high performance alloys (Titanium and Nickel Alloys)


Dr. Fahd’s research interests are primarily in the area of machining of high performance alloys such as Titanium and Nickel alloys. In his PhD, he worked on the bandsawing of these advanced alloys, using un-coated and coated carbide bandsaws. This project was a combination of mechanical and materials engineering.
