Biography

Rajiv Saxena obtained B.E. in Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering and M.E. in Digital Techniques and Data Processing. He joined IIT, Roorkee (erstwhile UOR, Roorkee), as a QIP Research Fellow, towards his Doctoral Degree Program. The Ph. D. degree was conferred on him in Electronics and Computer Engineering. During the research tenure, Prof. Saxena suggested a few corrections in one benchmark paper of Dr. A. Papoulis (a veteran in the field of Communication Engineering) published in the year 1973. These corrections were appreciated and accepted by Dr. A. Papoulis himself.

Prof. Saxena served at leading Textile Industries of the country and had industrial experience of automation in textile machinery. He became Lecturer in Electronics Engineering Department of Madhav Institute of Technology and Science, Gwalior. Prof. Saxena was promoted to Professor in Electronics Engineering in April 1997 and also served as Head of the Department and Chairman, BOS, at MITS, Gwalior. Prof. Saxena served, on lien from MITS, at Thapar Institute of Engineering and Technology (Now Thapar University), Patiala, as Professor in Electronics and Communication Engineering from June, 2000 to June 2002. He was the founder Head of the Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering at TIET, Patiala. He also served as Principal at Rustam Ji Institute of Technology, BSF Academy, Tekanpur, (again on lien from MITS, Gwalior) for a period of two years from January, 2004 to January, 2006.

He is associated with the Jaypee Education System since November 2006. Prior to current assignment, he was Professor and Head, Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering at Jaypee University of Engineering and Technology, Raghogarh, Guna (MP).

Prof. Saxena also served as Guest Faculty at leading institutions including ABV-IIITM, Gwalior, IITTM, Gwalior and in Sequential M. Tech. Program of U. P. Technical University, Lucknow. Prof. Saxena delivered various invited talks / keynote addresses at various platforms of repute. Prof. Saxena was involved in counselling / admissions at state and local level. Prof. Saxena served as Co-ordinator of Project IMPACT for a period of two years (project was a joint venture of World Bank and Ministry of Communication and I.T.). Prof. Saxena executed two major research projects funded by AICTE besides the project under FIST program of DST.

Prof. Saxena has supervised FIFTEEN Ph.D. candidates in the area of wireless, cellular, mobile and digital communication, digital signal processing, digital image processing and application of DSP tools in electronic systems and bio-medical engineering. Prof. Saxena has published about 85 research articles in refereed journals of national and international repute. Best paper award of IETE was also conferred on him in the year 2008. Prof. Saxena has also supervised about TWENTY FIVE PG Dissertations and many UG Projects in the areas of his interests.

Prof. Saxena had organized various national level seminars/ symposiums/ conferences and workshops.
