Professional Engineer with PhD and 30 year's experience as a lecturer - maths and maths related subjects

Methodology

Coming to the world of academia as a professional engineer (CEng) from industry, has enabled me to explain more of the reasons why subjects on an Engineering Degree are appropriate and why they are studied. This helps students to see where their studies are taking them and encourages a richer understanding of the subject matter.

Background

I have spent nearly thirty years as a University Lecturer teaching Mechanical Engineering at Foundation, Undergraduate and Postgraduate level. This has included subjects such as Design, Computer Aided Design, Solid Mechanics (Stress Analysis), Composite Materials and Mechanical Integrity. All of which require a working knowledge of Mathematics.
