I am responsible for providing academic leadership in delivering national and international excellence in undergraduate and postgraduate taught courses in Civil Engineering within a unified School of Engineering, contributing to the student experience and providing leadership in curriculum development, administration, liaison with industry, coordination and development of new courses. I am the Lead on discipline quality assurance and enhancement processes relating to all delivery modes and locations. I am the Lead on professional institution accreditation events and internal/external audits, managing the application of quality processes and developing new processes for the Civil Engineering discipline. I am holding responsibility for teaching, learning, and assessment across two postgraduate taught courses (MSc Tunnelling and Underground Space; MSc Humanitarian Engineering and variants) and three undergraduate courses (BEng Civil Engineering, MEng Civil Engineering and BEng Civil and Infrastructure Engineering Degree Apprenticeship), ensuring quality, progression, student satisfaction and recruitment. I am leading academic changes, including introduction of undergraduate and postgraduate periodic review, restructure and internationalisation of the curriculum. I work in support of developing and enhancing the School’s reputation, both internal and external to the University.
