Dr. Tahat earned his B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in Electrical Engineering from Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT), Chicago, IL, USA, with emphasis on electronics and circuits. He received a Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from the same university in 2002, with a focus on communications and signal processing. Dr. Tahat joined PSUT in 2005 as an Assistant Professor, later being promoted to Associate Professor. He participated in establishing the Department of Communications Engineering, and served as Head of the department from 2010 to 2012. He has also performed consultations for local industrial partners. In 2015, Dr. Tahat conducted research on wireless cellular network geo-localization systems at the Electrical Engineering Department of the École de Technologie Supérieure (ETS) in collaboration with Octasic Inc. in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Prior to that, he worked as a research scientist with the Department of Software Engineering and IT at ETS to develop a network security tool based on machine learning and data-mining theory and principles. From 2012 to 2013, he was a Visiting Professor with McGill University, Montreal, QC, Canada, in the Telecommunications and Signal Processing Laboratory of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, conducting research on modern wireless communications systems (such as the 3GPP LTE-A). From 2002 to 2003, he was an Adjunct Professor and a Post-Doctoral Researcher at IIT, Chicago, USA. Before completing his doctoral studies, he was with Lucent Technologies Inc. (Alcatel-Lucent) on first generation ADSL modem prototypes. He was also a member of the technical staff at 3Com Corporation in Illinois, USA, at the voice-band modem research and development group of the Personal Communications Division. Dr. Tahat is a Senior Member of Eta Kappa Nu and a member of Tau Beta Pi honor societies.
