Dr Andy Lung

Associate Professor

About

My job title is associate professor in the School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. After the graduation from Aston University in Birmingham with a first class honours degree in Production Engineering, I continued my study there and obtained a PhD degree which was sponsored by an industrial company specialised in manufacturing and CAD/CAM. My PhD title was Computer Integrated Manufacturing, and the specialisation was information management in an integrated manufacturing environment. I have since then expanded my research interest into other management aspects, including Project & Risk Management, Operations Management, Resources simulation, Just-In-Time production, Smart Manufacturing and Benchmarking Productivity.

I have been running two MSc courses successfully in the School, and one of them has also been franchised to a university called Piraeus University of Applied Sciences (PUAS) in Athens.

Dr Lung is also a registered chartered engineer.
