KARACHI  - The Sir Syed University of Engineering and Technology (SSUET) and University of Malaga, Spain, have agreed to sign a formal Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in near future to pave way for enhanced collaboration.

This was stated by Engr. Muhammad Aamir, Assistant Professor at SSUET’s Electronics Department who was awarded a grant as full sponsorship by Spanish Ministry of Education for a stay at Malaga University.

An official of the SSUET said here on Sunday that during his stay at the University, Engr Amir worked on FPGA based simulations as part of his PhD work, which focuses on Energy Management using SCADA.

Using tools available in the state of the art laboratories of Malaga University, Aamir carried out different design simulations in order to accurately evaluate the expected outcomes of FPGA-based design of Remote Terminal Unit as essential part of SCADA.

According to him, the joint collaboration was successfully established between research group titled Grupo I+D Ingeneiria de Communicacions at Malaga University and RF Optimization research activities at Sir Syed University of Engineering and Technology. Aamir, who is doing his PhD from Mehran University of Engineering and Technology, said that initial results of his work within this collaboration were presented in the First mobility for Life Conference on Telecommunication, Technology and Problem Based Learning held in March 2012 at Thailand under title Optimal Design of Remote Terminal Unit for Wireless SCADA System for Energy Management.

The simulations carried out have been a further step in this research work and both universities agreed to sign a formal Memorandum of Understanding in near future to further enhance the collaboration between them.
