The prime resource of the Department is its teaching staff. Staff members are encouraged to improve their teaching and research skills, remain active in industry and contribute to departmental administration and community service. Contracted-in industry experts and guest lecturers participate in the Department’s activities on an on-going basis and keep us in touch with industry requirements and trends.
Since 2008 full-time honours degree students have been appointed on a year-to-year basis to assist lecturers in their daily teaching responsibilities. Five extra-ordinary professors and one honorary professor have been appointed in the Department to supervise research students.
