Khan WaheedQamar，加拿大籍，是北京工业大学材料科学与工程学院的 2014 级博士研究生。 值得一提的是，他有一个非常醒目的中文名字——红旗。 红旗富有活力、求真务实、乐于助人，无论是在学术层面还是生活中其他的方方面面，他从不吝啬于伸出援手。 他坚信，“重要的不是我们工作了多少，而是我们在工作中投入了多少热情； 重要的也不是我们付出了多少，而是我们在付出中投入了多少热爱”。
红旗不仅有乐观迷人的性格，更拥有超凡的专业水准。 他是 IAENG(国际工程师协会)、PVS(巴基斯坦真空协会)、MSEE国际会议（2016）技术程序委员会的会员，同时也是 ICSMME-2015(结构，机械，材料工程国际学术会议)的主题报告人 。 同时工作之余，他还在北京垂杨柳医院帮助医务人员学习实用英语， 以便和他一样的外国友人在必要时能够得到更好的救助。
一个有着良好教育氛围的家庭，是红旗取得事业、人生成功源源不断的动力。 生活中，红旗总是井井有条、彬彬有礼，是一个一丝不苟并且值得信赖的人。 他热爱旅游，至今为止，已经在英国、美国、法国、德国、加拿大等二十多个国家留下过自己的足迹。 然而几年前，当他刚刚开始博士的学习时，父亲和兄弟的不幸去世使得他不得不放下一切去照看大家庭。
要知道，经历过如此大的变动 ，仍保持着初心 、活力和对人生的追求，需要莫大的勇气。 为了学习更多的专业技能，也是为了更加丰富多彩的生活，红旗选择在 2000 年移民去了加拿大，在充满生气的城市多伦多展开了新的人生画卷。 然而，在那里红旗又迎来了新的挑战——他必须要重新通过多伦多当地的所有考试才有资格申请工作。 不懈地努力下，红旗以优秀的成绩通过所有的测试，成为了国际工程师协会、 安大略湖注册工程师协会、 巴基斯坦工程委员会以及巴基斯坦真空协会的会员。
在取得硕士学位后， 红旗在巴基斯坦就职于一家国家科研机构。 在此期间，他曾到中国接受了航空航天方面的技术训练，也因此对中国人民和中华文化产生了强烈的兴趣，与中国结下了不解之缘。
红旗说：“中国有着绝佳的学习环境， 在这里学生们被鼓励去细心、批判性地思考，去解决困难而不是掩盖问题。 而北工大也一直鼓励并努力提升教学过程的定期监管和反思 ，也成功地向人们传达了高等教育中最为重要的信息— —学习需要承诺、勤奋、责任以及一颗愿意冒险的心。 如果能够遵循这些原则，你将会受益匪浅，将会发现原来学习可以这么有趣 。所以，好好学习吧！ ”
在研究和学习上的用功， 使得红旗没有太多时间和精力去参加其他的社交活动， 但他对于北工大和国际学院组织的各项活动却总是保持着很大的积极性——他和朋友还一起在北工大的“国际日”活动中搭建了文化站台。 除此之外，他还致力于号召人们保护地球、参与像“地球一小时 ”这样的环保活动。 2016 年 3 月 19 日，红旗就亲身实践、加入到了 WWF（世界野生动物基金）的“地球一小时”活动中来。 这一活动席卷全球，红旗和成千上万的志同道合的朋友一起 ，熄灯一小时 、拯救地球一小时。
可以说， 红旗的坚持与成功鼓舞着年轻的学生和研究员们。 他一直相信好的习惯才能造就高尚的品格；而好的习惯与高尚的品格也并非与生俱来，相反的，正如孔子所言：“性相近，习相远”，我们有一切权利和机会去选择养成什么样的习惯、去踏上怎样的人生道路。
On the Road of Exploration
——Khan WaheedQamar, Winner of Chinese Government Excellent International Student Scholarship Khan WaheedQamar
Khan WaheedQamar, International student from Canada, is now a PhD candidate in Materials Science and Engineering (Key laboratory for Advanced Functional Materials) at Beijing University of Technology. It is worthmentioning that he has a remarkable Chinese name——“Hong Qi”, which means “Red Flag”. Hong Qi is an energetic and pragmatic individual always willing to help everyone in academic and other fields of life. He believes strongly that “It is not how much we do, but how much love we put in the doing. It is not how much we give, but how much love we put in the giving.”
Hong Qi does not only possess an impressive personality but also superior professional competence. Overall he published five SCI research papers and also is member of IAENG and PVS.Furthermore he delivered “Keynote speech at ICSMME-2015,(International Conference on structure, mechanical and material engineering) Dalian and currently member of Technical Programme committee in International Conference on Material Science and Environmental Engineering (MSEE 2016). He is a coordinator of English corner at Chuiyangliu hospital, Beijing and helping medical staff to learn practical English, in turn this can equip the doctors of hospital to serve the foreigner patients in a better way.
The Exploration of Growth
He grew up in an educated family of engineers and doctors,which was the natural impetus behind his career goals and successful life. In daily life he is well-organized, well-mannered,meticulous, dependable and reliable. He likes to travel and visited more than 20 countries around the world including England,America, France, Germany, Canada, China, Singapore, Malaysia,Indonesia, Austria, Holland and many more.Few years ago he started his PhD studies but due to unfortunate sad demise of his father and brother, cannot continue the studies and preferred to look after his big family.
It takes a lot of courage to face big problems in life and still move forward with ambitions and energy. To gain more technical skills and enriched living standard, Khan WaheedQamar immigrated to Canada in the year 2000 and started living in the vibrant city of Toronto. It’s like a new birth in another country,where one has to qualify all the regional exams to be eligible for a job. Khan Waheed passed all the examinations with great success and is the meritorious member of International association for Engineers, Ontario association of Certified Engineers and techs,(OACET, Canada), Pakistan Engineering council (PEC) and Pakistan Vacuum Society.
The Exploration in China
After the accomplishment of master’s degree, he started working for a national scientific organization in Pakistan. During this time he visited china to accept technical training in aerospace technology, henceforth developed an early fervent bond with Chinese culture and people.
During his prosperous career in Canada he yet again planned to pursue the dream of PhD and choose China because of aforementioned love and interest in Chinese culture and life Chinese name HongQi (红旗) also shows his love with PRC as a great country of loving people.
Khan WaheedQamar says that, “China as a country involves the creation of a learning environment, in which students are encouraged to think carefully and critically. Express their thoughts in a way that resolves difficulties, rather than glossing over them and BJUT encourages the constant monitoring and reflection of the teaching processes and seeks to improve it and has been successful in conveying, perhaps the most challenging of all notions that underlie higher education, the message that learning requires commitment, hard work, responsibility, and a willingness to take risks. Following these principles has great rewards, not the least the realization that learning can be fun, so study hard, be a good student”.
The Unlimited Road of Exploration
Now after more than two years through his own efforts and consistent hard work to become a skillful researcher, now feels able to give himself a satisfactory answer. He is a role model in the eyes of other students, but in his heart, just a hard working lucky person, whose mother is always praying for his success.
Due to concentrated efforts on research and studies there is not much time left to participate in other social activities, but he is actively involved in various activities arranged by BJUT and college of international education. Khan WaheedQamar along with his friends organized a cultural booth on “International day”in BJUT. He is trying to unite people to protect the planet and participate in “Earth hour” environmental activities. On Saturday, 19 March 2016, as WWF’s Earth Hour rolled across the world,Khan WaheedQamar joined online with millions to shine a light on the climate action our planet needs.
He is an inspiration to young students and researchers.He believes that good habits develop good character. We are not born into this world with fixed habits. Neither do we inherit a noble character. Confucius said that the nature of men is always the same. It is their habits that separate them. Instead, we are given the privilege and opportunity of choosing which way of life we will follow, which habits we will form.
Khan WaheedQamar believes that with success, we also owe great responsibilities for society. Peace in every home, every country, this is his dream. To see each and every human being with a smile of happiness is his wish.
