Faculty Profile

Dr. Shafay Shamail

Associate Professor

Department Of Comp. Scienc

Dr. Shafay Shamail completed his BSc Electrical Engineering from UET Lahore, MSc Electronics from University of Wales, UK and Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from University of Bath U.K. Before joining LUMS Dr Shamail worked in both the software industry as well as in the academia. During his stay at SoftNet Systems, he gained experience in e-commerce technologies, especially those from Microsoft. Dr. Shamail has taught at UET Lahore as well as at Pak-AIMS, and has a vast experience of curriculum design and implementation. He was Chair Department of Computer Science LUMS from 2004 to 2009. He worked as Vice Provost LUMS from 2010 to 2012. Since 2012 he is working as Director Office of Sponsored Prorammes (OSP). He is a Senior Member of IEEE and chaired IEEE Lahore Section for the session 2010-2011.
