I am interesting in making engineering education fun, hands on and engaging. I like trying new technology out in the lecture theatre such as in-class voting. I am also strongly committed to the CDIO (cdio.org) method of teaching which encourages students to develop skills such as team working and project planning. As a group, we are trying to produce graduates who are industry ready and enthusiastic about engineering.
