About

Kevin is a visiting scholar from the School of Engineering in Trinity College Dublin, Ireland(http://www.tcd.ie/mecheng/) where he is the programme director for the MAI (Engineering with Management) masters degree and a member of the manufacturing research group. Kevin’s teaching activities are mainly in manufacturing and design, and his research interests cover design, manufacturing, robotics and engineering education. Kevin recently co-ordinated, for Trinity College Dublin, a European research project called ATTRACT (www.attractproject.org) – aiming to define best practice in engineering education under the headings of image, entry requirements, outreach and retention.

In the area of engineering education, Kevin has particular interests in project based learning, promotion of engineering as a viable career option to children (particularly girls) and the utility of entrance information for prediction of student progression. Kevin is very involved in outreach activities, and runs an engineering summer school for teenage girls.
