Dr Abdulwaheed MUSA holds a B. Eng. (Electrical and Computer Engineering) from the Federal University of Technology, Minna, Nigeria and holds a degree of MSc (Communication Engineering) and a PhD (Communication Engineering) from the International Islamic University Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Currently working with the Kwara State University, Malete, Nigeria, Dr. Musa teaches Telecommunication Engineering, carries out research and provides professional services on signal propagation.
Communication Systems, Signal Propagation and Propagation Physics form parts of his area of expertise. His areas of interest also include microwave and millimeter wave bands. Following the International Telecommunication Union’s (ITU) recommendation (ITU-R P.837, 2012) on the use of long-term measurement with a 1-min integration time for the prediction of attenuation and scattering caused by precipitations which gives higher accuracy, Dr. Musa proposed a model to accurately calculate Sand and Dust Storms (SDS) percentage of exceedance for an average year for different locations in northern Nigeria. The model enhances designs of telecommunication systems.
He has written several scholarly papers and got his works published in International Journals and Conference Proceedings. His publications include Dust-Storm Induced Cross-Polarization at Millimeter Wave Bands in Northern Nigeria, Electromagnetic Scattering Computation Methods for very Small Spheroidal Particles: Theory and Applications, Energy Particle-physics, Review and Assessment of Electromagnetic Wave Propagation in Dust Storms at Microwave and Millimeter Wave Bands, and many more.
Dr Abdulwaheed Musa is a registered engineer with the Council for the Regulation of Engineering in Nigeria (COREN) and a member of the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET). He is also a member of the DUST Scientific Committee and a convener of International Conference on Atmospheric Dust, Castellaneta Marina (TA), Italy, and one of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, IEEE (Antennas and Propagation) reviewers.
