Hey there! I am Maaz Khurram, a passionate Electrical Engineer with a strong interest in Analog IC Design. Check out some of the projects I have been working on below! Looking back, I have spent countless late nights in the engineering labs or at home troubleshooting new projects and fine-tuning old ones. The projects below have been instrumental in my journey of technical learning and growth, and I wouldn't trade it for anything!


Note: Much of the credit goes to the incredible professors, technicians, mentors, and colleagues who were always there when I needed help. Their willingness to share their precious time with an engineering student eager to learn made all the difference.
