He also served as Director of the Computer Systems Laboratory, Communications Laboratory and the Postgraduate Program at the Department of Electrical Engineering as well as the Directorate of Research Extension & Advisory Services of the University of Engineering and Technology, Lahore.[3]  Served As 


He purportedly tendered his resignation from the Department of Electrical Engineering University of Engineering and Technology, Lahore over a dispute with the administration, notably the Vice-Chancellor Lt.

Bokhari’s resignation led to a letter-writing campaign by several of his former students who were dismayed at what they claimed to be mismanagement at the state-run Pakistani universities.


Bokhari’s ACM Fellow citation states that he received the award for his “research contributions to automatic load balancing and partitioning of distributed processes”, while his IEEE Fellow award recognizes his “contributions to the mapping problem in parallel and distributed computing”.[5]  Award
