Md Nazmul Hasan was born in Dhaka, Bangladesh. He passed secondary school exam (SSC) from Motijheel Model High School Dhaka and went to Adamjee Cantonment College, Dhaka, Bangladesh in higher secondary certificate exam (HSC). He was the first-boy in Motijheel Model High School Dhaka until SSC. He has been meritorious since his childhood. His bachelor, Masters, and PhD - all were full scholarship.


He is currently pursuing PhD in Electrical & Computer Engineering at University of British Columbia (UBC), Vancouver, Canada with prestigious FYF Fellowship, President's Academic Excellence Initiative PhD Award and GSI scholarship. He is also working as a Research Assistant (RA) and a Teaching Assistant (TA) at UBC, Vancouver. In February 2019, he completed MS in Electrical and Computer Engineering from South Korea with the outstanding STEM Graduate scholarship. Before coming to South Korea, he was studying executive MBA at IBA, University of Dhaka but dropped out to pursue MS in South Korea. Prior to MS, he received the prestigious President scholarship of Pakistan awarded through the Ministry of Education, Bangladesh to pursue his BSc in Electrical Engineering from a public engineering university in Pakistan, University of Engineering and Technology Peshawar (UET Peshawar).


After MS degree from South Korea, he received admission offer in DPhil (PhD) program at the Engineering Science Department of The University of Oxford, UK. Additionally, he also received PhD scholarship at the University of Queensland, Australia and at Arizona State University, USA. However, with all these offers available, he preferred to move to Canada in 2019 for PhD.

While he was in  undergrad final year, he established the world’s 1st CST Microwave Studio based antenna design YouTube channel called Tensorbundle which quickly grew as the most viewed Antenna engineering CST YouTube channel in the world. He has led several collaborative antenna projects with researchers from Oxford and other universities such as Technische Universität Chemnitz Germany, Macquiare University Australia, Boise State University USA, KU Leuven Belgium, and IIT Dhanbad India. These research works have been published in peer-reviewed journals and international conferences in USA, Canada, and Japan. At present, he is working in collaboration for his first's book chapter on wireless communication engineering with a professor at University of Arkansas, USA.

As an altruistic social service to his country Bangladesh, he has also established a scholarship platform for Bangladeshi students called Scholarship Schools BD which provides scholarship guidelines, research opportunities, and higher studies suggestions to Bangladeshi students.

Beyond his regular electronics research works, he loves reading philosophical aspects of mathematics and physics. At leisure, he enjoys turning mystery/detective book pages with several cups of coffees. Additionally, he also likes to travel and spend time in nature. He loves pets, specially cats.
