Celebrating Dr. Sarah Qureshi’s Achievements
Dr Sarah Qureshi is Pakistan’s pride! She has made the country proud of her achievements on multiple occasions. Asides from being a PhD holder in Aerospace Engineering from Cranfield University, UK she is also a licensed pilot.
Moreover, Dr. Sarah Qureshi is also the founder of Pakistan’s first commercial Aircraft engine and Aircraft company in Pakistan – company called “Aero Engine Craft”.
Furthermore, Qureshi is the brains behind Pakistan’s and the world’s first eco-friendly aircraft engine. The engine has an idiosyncratic pressure-based condensation system which will help in cooling the water vapours in the aeroplane exhaust. The water will be on the aeroplane and can be released as rain if needed.
Dr. Sarah Qureshi had been working on the project since 2018 to eliminate the negative impact of commercial air carriers on the stratosphere that contributes to global warming and attained success between mid-to-late 2020.
Her area of specialization is Propulsion whereby she worked on the development of a contrail-free aero-engine that has been derived from a novel patented technology.
Sarah was actively involved with the invented technical outcome of the engine. The innovative engine has tremendous potential in bringing about an environmental revolution in the context of aviation. Dr. Sarah Qureshi, along with the inventor of technology Mr. Masood Latif Qureshi has now set up Aero Engine Craft (Private) Limited to convert this patented technology into a full-scale commercial application ready to be used by modern civil transport aircraft.
During her PhD, Sarah supervised a number of MSc. students for their research projects on Jet Engine Technology. Prior to this, Sarah completed her master’s degree in the field of Aerospace Dynamics from Cranfield University, UK.
Her research involved the design of a trajectory following controller inclusive of stability augmentation, attitude control system and outer loop autopilot for unmanned aircraft (UAVs) flying in close formation for the purpose of air-to-air refuelling.
After graduating as a Mechanical Engineer from Pakistan, Sarah gained extensive experience of working in the local automotive and engineering industry. Her bachelor’s research project involved the development of a measurement and data logging system for the in-cylinder temperature and combustion of an internal combustion engine.
Her prime technical interests are focused on engine technology and aircraft design. Sarah holds a Private Pilot License (PPL) with 70 hours of Flying Experience. She has also learned acrobatic flying and several flight manoeuvres while at Cranfield.
Dr. Sarah Qureshi & Mr. Masood Latif Qureshi – The Perfect Duo
Dr. Sarah Qureshi works with Mr. Masood Latif Qureshi, the Cheif Scientist Officer and Chief Technology Officer at Aero Engine Craft. Masood has a Masters degree in Physics and Electronics Engineering.
He has over 45 years of work experience in UK and Pakistan. Masood has multidisciplinary expertise in a number of engineering fields primarily electronic control systems, instrumentation, communications, automotive, aerospace, mechanical and manufacturing engineering.
Successful products developed by him over the years include electron beam particle accelerator, C-Band antennae, intruder detection security system, plastic injection processing, machine tool design, paper width detector for paper mills, ionization probe for IC engines, camera jig, injection moulding controller, beam change controller and CNC machines controller. His present work is focused on the development and prototyping of a 600 cc two-cylinder transfer engine, a centrifugal water expeller for jet engines, and a 1000 cc elliptic rotary vane engine.
Masood co-authored a postgraduate textbook on Chemistry published by Wiley VCH and has been coding software in C++. He works with a unique combination of art, design and engineering and has over 10 inventions in the aerospace, automotive and electronics domains with two internationally granted patents.
He is an accomplished artist and avidly paints landscapes in watercolour. Masood has always been a keen explorer and has travelled to 52 countries in the world.
The team also includes Shermeen Ahmed Khan (Financial Advisor), Dr. Rumana Qureshi (Technical Advisor), and Sana Raza Khan (Financial Advisor).
Kudos to Dr. Sarah Qureshi for placing Pakistan on the map in a field where women hardly exist.
