1998-05 Faculty Consultant, Mehran University of Engineering and Technology (MUET), Jamshoro, Sindh, Pakistan.
  At the invitation of Vice-Chancellor, Dr. Memon, I visited MUET and helped solidify the scientific collaboration of two institutions, namely MUET and Pakistan Steel, and I initiated graduate students exchange between MUET and DalTech. I remained a faculty consultant for MUET and planned to expand the collaboration in other than metallurgical areas of research.
1995-96 Faculty Consultant, Corporate Magnesium Center, General Motors Research and Development Center, Warren, MI 48090, USA. See industrial experience
1993-98 Visiting Professor, Department of Chemical Engineering & Institute of Chemical Engineering and High Temperature Chemical Processes, University of Patras, Patras, Greece.
  During the summer months of 1993, I visited the Institute and initiated a research program on the electrodeposition of refractory and rare earth metals. Through research grant and a subsequent travel grant from the Secreteriat of Research and Development of the Greek Government I was able to monitor the progress of the graduate students.
1993 Summer Visiting Professor, Institute of Inorganic Chemistry, Norwegian Institute of Technology, University of Trondheim, Trondheim, Norway.
  Using funds provided by SINTEF, Dr. Terje Ostvold invited me to initiate a program related to the determination of the solubility of oxides in molten chloride salts using a LECO instrument, a technique which I had developed previously in General Motors. The program has been expanded to other oxide systems and is presently used for the NATO science for peace project.
