Engineering postgraduate offering CAD lessons (SOLIDWORKS & INVENTOR) in Sunderland and Newcastle upon Tyne.

Methodology

My teaching method is to equip the student with some technical knowledge and then, under my supervision, allow them to solve and produce complex designs using Solidworks software. With time the student develops confidence in using the interface and rapidly advances in skill. Teaching includes solid modeling, assembly creation, FEA and motion analysis.

Background

I am a mechanical engineer with extended study in Manufacturing Engineering and Automation. I can teach CAD packages and have 12+ years experience in designing components to be made by 3D printing, CNC machining, sheet metal fabrication and Laser/Plasma cutting. I have worked on civil engineering projects but have mainly designed industrial components. I pay great attention to detail and this translates in my work.

Spyros's CV

A mechanical engineer passionate about innovation, design and automation.

EDUCATION
University of Sunderland MSc Manufacturing Engineering (Oct.2018 - Oct.2019)
• Achieved a distinction.
• Written dissertation with title “Design of a tool changer for the Kawasaki FS03N robotic manipulator”. A unique mechanism was devised. The project involved designing complex mechanical components using Solidworks software, 3D printing and laser cutting, performing computer simulated and physical stress tests and programming a robotic manipulator. The outcome was of high standards and the mechanism has been permanently installed on the robot.
• Taught modules: CAD, Automation & Mechatronics, Maintenance management, Operations management, Robotics, Materials science, Product Oriented Manufacturing.
• Leading three successful team projects as part of the course resulted in achieving top scores.
University of Newcastle upon Tyne MSc Mechatronics (Oct.2005 - Oct.2006)
• Written dissertation on the design and development of a passive bipedal walker. A functioning, walking model was designed using Inventor software and manufactured at the university’s CNC machine.
• Taught modules: CAD, Microprocessors, Sensors & Actuators, Dynamics, Control and Automation, Distributed Control Systems, Robotics.
• Student Liaison Representative.
University of Newcastle upon Tyne MSc Mechanical Engineering with English (Oct.2004 - Oct.2005)
• Written dissertation on the effects of friction generated from train wheels rolling over rails, part of New Rail. Ran simulation tests via custom software “Dynarat” on Linux machines and suggested ways to improve the software algorithm and make the results more realistic.
• Taught modules: Design for Production, Dynamics, CAD, Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Continuum Mechanics.
• Student Liaison Representative.
University of Glamorgan BEng (Hons) Mechanical Engineering (Sept.1999 - Sept.2003)
