Dr Saim Memon is a senior lecturer in Electrical Engineering and Course Director in Electrical and Electronic Engineering (HND) at School of Engineering, London South Bank University, London, UK. He studied BEng(Hons) in Electrical Engineering (Mehran UET, Pk), MSc in Mechatronics (Staffordshire University, UK), PhD in Electrical & Electronic Engineering (Loughborough University, UK) and PGCert in Teaching Qualification FE (University of Aberdeen, UK). He is a Chartered Engineer through The IET and registered at Engineering Council UK. He is a Fellow of Higher Education Academy and has a Qualified Teacher status by General Teaching Council for Scotland (GTCS). He teaches BEng/MEng/MSc modules and supervises BEng/MSc/MEng/PhD students.
He has multi-disciplinary research/academic experiences in Electrical, Electronic, Solar Thermal Vacuum Engineering and Renewable-Energy Engineering. He has over 35 first-authored research publications in the form of journals, book-chapter, conference papers, book-editor, newsletter, and magazines. He presented his research findings in collaboration with leading scientists in the UK, Europe, USA, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Japan, Thailand, Malaysia, Kenya, Peru, Russia, China, and Pakistan. He secured funding from H2020, Innovate-UK, The IET Engineering Education Grant Scheme, DAIWA-Anglo-Japanese Foundation, Royal Academy of Engineering participation and numerous Newton-Fund participation grants.
With his enthusiasm and passion in research, he organised and chaired national and international conferences. He has been a long committee member (past secretory) of the Institute of Physics Vacuum Group and past-committee member of the IET regions across the UK. He also worked as an external examiner in scrutinising MSc courses. He is also a lead contributor to the Vacuum Science World magazine. In his recent project, he motivated engineering education in local London Schools/Colleges as a Project Manager and organised solar car challenge events.
