Professor Colin Turner is Head of School for Engineering, having taken up that role in 2010, and Professor of Engineering Education since 2013. With an initial background in Pure Mathematics, he joined Ulster University in 1998 to take up a post as Lecturer in Mathematics, Computing and Statistics and undertaking Cardio Vascular research with the Royal Victoria Hospital and NIBEC.
Colin’s areas of teaching expertise are in Mathematics and Software Development and how these relate to Engineering. He also has interests in the developments of technology to assist Learning and Teaching, for which he has twice been awarded the University’s Distinguished Learning Support Fellowship. He has a particular interest in technologies that impact upon Employability both within the University environment and outside. He has had a key involvement in Ulster’s strategic response and implementation of the Key Information Set (KIS) and the Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR), and producing electronic systems to manage curricula and the processes of their development to ensure all appropriate information is captured.
Colin has BSc and PhD degrees from Queen’s University Belfast. He is a Fellow of the Institution of Mathematics and its Applications (FIMA), a Fellow of the Institution of Engineering and Technology (FIET), a Principal Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (PFHEA), a committee member for the Engineering Professors’ Council (EPC), and a member of the advisory group for the All Party Group for Science and Technology at the Northern Ireland Assembly and an Executive Committee member and Trustee for ASET, the UK body for placement professionals.
