Mike has strategic responsibility and oversight of operational delivery for the design, development and implementation of TEDI-London’s academic programme as well as the student journey. He is also President of the Engineering Professors’ Council, the representative organisation of UK engineering academics.
Mike plays a leading role in the New Approaches to Engineering Higher Education initiative. He was also instrumental in leading an influential policy paper on degree apprenticeships, an area he had already become experienced in in when helping to establish the initial Degree Apprenticeship Programme at Kingston University, where he served as Pro-Vice Chancellor and Dean of Science, Engineering and Computing.
Prior to that he served as Head of the School of Chemical Engineering and Analytical Science at the University of Manchester, where he achieved global top 25 status in QS World Rankings and a top 3 position in the UK in REF 2014 – underpinned by attaining an Athena SWAN Silver Award, which reflects embedding a culture that nurtures and supports all staff and students in attaining their aspirations.
