Swedish institute publishes Punjab University College of Information Technology lecturer’s MS thesis

Lahore: Punjab University College of Information Technology (PUCIT) Lecturer Omer Nawaz’s MS thesis titled “Secure Identification in Social Wireless Networks” has been published by the Swedish Institute of Computer Science (SCIS). The link of the thesis is http://soda.swedish-ict.se/view/institute/SICS/2011/thesis.html.

Omer has also received a stipend of SEK 20,000 (approximately Rs 260,000), which is only paid after successful achievements of industrial requirements and publication in SICS.

Currently, Omer Nawaz is in Sweden, pursuing his PhD in Computer Engineering from Blekinge Institute of Technology (BTH), Sweden. Earlier this year he completed his MS, also from BTH.

It is worth mentioning here that SICS publishes just a few theses each year and has published 2-5 thesis per year during the past six years. Since 2000, only one Muslim scholar (Tallat Shafaat in 2009) has been able to get his thesis published by the Institute. This year, Omer is the first whose thesis has been published, followed by two more so far.

PU Vice-Chancellor Prof Dr Mujahid Kamran has congratulated Omer Nawaz on getting a unique achievement as his thesis has been published by the SCIS. He said it was a pride for the college and varsity.
