Dr. Moeness Amin, director of Villanova’s Center for Advanced Communications, College of Engineering, recently traveled to Saudi Arabia where he was invited to lecture on advances in signal processing theory and applications at three Saudi universities.
During his visits to King Abdullah University of Science and Technology in Thuwal, King Saud University in Riyadh, and King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals in Dhahran, Dr. Amin presented three tutorials and three seminars, including:
- “Recent Advances in Sparse Array Design”
- “Dual Function Radar Communication Systems: Towards RF Convergence”
- “Radio Frequency Sensing in Healthcare: Detection of Falls, Gait Abnormality and Vital Signs”
In addition to the tutorials and seminars, Dr. Amin met with many PhD students, postdocs, research scientists and faculty to discuss emerging technologies in radar and communications. At King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals, he also met with more than 20 undergraduate students who are engaged in research and had an extended meeting with the university’s curriculum committee to discuss cross-disciplinary course offerings.
Dr. Amin received his MSc degree from King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals in 1980. He says, “My visit to campus after 40 years and seeing old friends who were my classmates was the highlight of my trip.”
