Dr. Kahtan Ismail Aziz received his BSc from the University of Technology in 1987 and PhD in Adaptive Systems from the University of Bristol, UK, in 1993. From 1994 to 1997 he was with the Manchester Metropolitan University as a Research Fellow. In 1997 he joined the University of Wales as Senior Lecturer until 2001. He won grants from one of the local industries in Wales to develop a high pressure sensor using fibre optics being used by NASA.

In 2001 he joined NEC (one of the major Japanese companies) at their European Research and Development Centre in Reading, UK. He worked on the development of the first 3G Mobile phone and was team leader and later he became an Engineering Consultant. He joined Al-Ghurair University, Dubai, in 2009 as Associate Professor and later was head of the Electrical Engineering Department. In 2020, he joined Anglia Ruskin University as Senior Lecturer and MSc course leader.

Dr. Aziz has published a number of papers in international scientific journals and international conferences. He chaired several scientific sessions in various international conferences. He is Editor-in-Chief of the Global Journal of Engineering Research and Technology (GJERT). Dr. Aziz is a senior member of IEEE, and member of IET.
