Reporting directly to the Dean of the School on matters relating to marketing, recruitment and admissions. Management of the recruitment and marketing team.
Managing externally funded projects including two projects dealing with bio fuels, sponsored by the Royal Academy of Engineering. This project necessitates the production of small batches of Biodiesel which is then donated to local charities; this project is used mainly as a tool for recruitment, PR and to raise issues surrounding the environment and how engineering engages with it. Toured throughout the UK and the EU countries, giving lectures outlining the issues surrounding the use of bio fuels as an alternative to mineral diesel, coal and other non-renewable fuels. Committed to exploring and exploiting sustainable energy production in order to combat anthropological climate change and the problems of peak oil production.

Successful track record in securing external funding and in developing projects to promote science and engineering in schools. One such project has been voted runner up for best engineering project in the National Science & Engineering Week 2009. Student recruitment at undergraduate level, is increasing year on year, providing the School with a consistent yearly income stream Played a major part in establishing new overseas markets, in particular in the EU, but also working extensively in the Middle East and Southern Africa.
