Background

Ian developed a professional doctorate for our Engineering and the Built Environment Department in 2004. It’s the first course of its kind in the UK and is specifically designed for professionals who are already working full-time in the industry. The scope of the professional doctorate was widened to our wider Faculty of Science & Technology subject areas in 2013.

Ian has supervised nine doctoral candidates to completion. His teaching interests include building services, modelling sustainable architecture, and work-based learning.
