Fayyaz Muddassir Mubeen holds a BS degree in Mechanical Engineering from NED University of Engineering & Technology, Pakistan and an MS degree in the same discipline from King Fahad University of Petroleum & Minerals, Dhahran, Saudi Arabia with specialization in desalination. He has a post graduate certificate from International Center for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), Trieste, Italy in Nuclear Desalination. For doctorate, his research is focused on the computer modeling of the effects of ultrasonic vibrations on the flow pattern in Reverse Osmosis Membranes. He has authored 35 research papers on desalination and materials. He is also an active member of Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC) and Institute of Engineers, Pakistan (IEP).
Fayyaz Muddassir Mubeen is the current Affiliate Director of IDA and the president of Pakistan Desalination Association (PakDA). He joined IDA in 1981 and served as a full Director of IDA during the period 1999 – 2002. He has been a member of several IDA committees including Research, Publication Committee, and Scholarship Committees.
He is working in RO and MSF fields for the last twenty five years at managerial positions. He has been involved in the design, engineering, installation and commissioning of many of the world’s large SWRO desalination plants like Al-Birk, Ras Tanajib, Safaniya, Dhahran Aramco Drinking Water Plant. For four years, he worked in the SWRO Department of Research and Development Center of the world’s largest desalination organization namely, Saline Water Conversion Corporation (SWCC) of Saudi Arabia. He also worked on the ASTM Project “Glossary of Reverse Osmosis Technology.” Presently, he is working as a RO Expert to ACWA POWER, Saudi Arabia.
Mr. Mubeen is one of the members of IDA Quarterly, 'Desalination, and Water Reuse'. He also writes a very popular article, 'Materials for Desalination Processes' in the same magazine. He is author of two books on desalination; one of them 'Desalination by Questions and Answers' is very informative and user-friendly. He was also made the member of Editorial Board of, Paris based, International Journal for Nuclear Desalination (IJND). He is an advisor to many engineering universities and technical institutes of Pakistan on desalination and materials projects and guided around one hundred students on desalination related projects.
