Dr. Rehan is an active researcher of the EE department and his primary research interest is in the Control System Design and Implementation. He has published 51 International Journal papers (with total Impact Factor around 120) and 19 conference papers to his credit. He has served as reviewer for several International ISI-indexed journals. He has supervised 21 MS Thesis, from which 7 ISI-indexed papers were published by the MS students. Currently, he is supervising 4 MS and 5 PhD students (degrees of 3 PhD students to be completed this year).
       Dr. Rehan has completed his PhD degree from Pusan National University, South Korea, with distinction in a short time-span of two years and his PhD dissertation was kept in National Congress Library of Korea owing to his outstanding research performance. He has published six ISI-indexed journal papers from his PhD thesis. He also received Research Productivity Award (three times) for the duration 2012-2013, 2015-2016 and 2016-2017 from Pakistan Council of Science and Technology. Dr. Rehan has been selected as Young Associate of Pakistan Academy of Science in the discipline of Engineering in nationwide competition. 
       Recently, Dr. Rehan has been selected for two prestigious awards in the Pure Engineering discipline by Higher Education Commission (HEC) of Pakistan. A research paper titled "Modeling and automatic feedback control of tremor: Adaptive estimation of deep brain stimulation" published in PLoS One has been selected for the Best Research Paper Award  (Pure Engineering) in the 5th Outstanding Research Awards by HEC. Moreover, Dr. Rehan has been selected for the Best Young Research Scholar Award (Pure Engineering) in 5th Outstanding Research Awards by HEC in a nationwide competition. It should be noted that only one person has to be selected for this award for Pure Engineering category.
