Associate Professor

I am Engr. Dr. Yawar Abbas Bangash serving as Associate Professor in the department of Computer Software Engineering, National University of Sciences and Technology, NUST. I have received the B.S. degree in software engineering from the KPK University of Engineering and Technology Peshawar, Pakistan, in 2008; the M.S. degree in computer science (information security) from Wuhan University of Technology, Wuhan, China, in 2014; and the Ph.D. degree (Computer Science) from Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Wuhan, in 2017. From 2008 to 2012, I have worked with Huawei Organization Pakistan Ltd., Islamabad, Pakistan, Higher Education Commission (HEC) Project PERN2, and Baluchistan Education Foundation on different positions in networking sector. I am actively supervising both MS and PhD level students. Until now, I have supervised 13 MS students in the field of Software Engineering, Human Factors, AI/ML, SDN, Computer Networks, and Software Defined Networking. I have published high quality papers in prestigious journals such as IEEE Communication Survey and Tutorials, IEEE Internet of Things Journal, IEEE Systems Journal, Cluster Computing, and ACM Computing Surveys with the cumulative impact factor above 120 (h-index 11, citations 800+). I have conducted various workshops related to 5G technologies, AI in business, Human Factors in SE and Cybersecurity, and SDN. My research interests include: Software Defined Networking, Software Defined Storage, AI, ML, Wireless Sensor Networks, Formal Methods in Software Engineering, Human Factors in SE/cybersecurity, Information Security, Cloud Computing, Data Center Networking, IoT, and Security in SDN, WSN and Smart IoT. In addition, I have won the HEC Prestigious Scholarship “M.S. leading to Ph.D.” for five years in 2012 (2012-2017). My aim is to serve, enhance my Ph.D. experience and to do further research in a well reputed higher education institution to build a professional and research based educated community for the bright future of our society.
