RPS Belfast Director Don McQuillan has been appointed Royal Academy of Engineering Visiting Professor of Engineering Design at Queens’ University Belfast.
This is part of an industry-into-academia initiative which “aims to utilise the experience of the Visiting Professor to enhance student learning as well as the employability and skills of UK engineering graduates” and in which senior industry practitioners share best practice and participate in course development, face-to-face teaching and mentoring of engineering undergraduates.
A First Class Honours graduate of QUB, Don is very much looking forward to this new exciting opportunity.
Don is a long-standing Professional Reviewer of graduate engineers, with both the Institution of Civil Engineers and Engineers Ireland, and for many years has mentored RPS’ young engineers in their career development. He is also currently a Vice President of the Institution of Structural Engineers and serves on its Board.
