Personal profile


Unusual these day’s, I started my career in engineering  as a craft apprentice (at Renold Gears) without any formal qualifications and through six years of part-time study, I achieved the HNC in Engineering plus endorsement at distinction level. I also gained Top Apprentice awards throughout my apprentice and several class awards. This success lead to a student  apprenticeship offer (from David Brown Gears) to study for a B. Eng. (Hons) sandwich degree in Mechanical Engineering at The University of Bradford.

My career at David Browns was varied; manufacturing engineering, CNC programming, process planning, stress engineering and finally developing bespoke CAD programs for gear design and draughting during the infancy of CAD. I also completed a part-time post-graduate Diploma in Management Sciences at the University of Manchester.

I have been employed in academia as Lecturer and Senior Lecturer for the last 25 years. My major area of expertise is in CAD/CAM and CAD/CAM Management. I have taught this subject area at both under-graduate and post-graduate level and my major administration responsibility has been as Project Tutor, organising and managing dissertaions for final year students, amongst other administration duties.

I have undertaked various consultancies in either CAD/CAM development work for companies or advising companies on the successful application and exploitation of CAD/CAM and various Teaching Company Schemes, College Based Partnership Schemes, as well as design orientated RECRAFT projects to assist small manufacturing companies.

More recently I have been involved in research and application of CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) for pipe line analysis, wind turbines, commercial vehicles and industrial valves. Some of this work has lead to various publications.
