Dr Tina Papadopoulou Dipl.-Ing. PhD SFHEA FRICS FCIOB MAPM MInstLM

Associate Professor

About

I am strategic thinker with demonstrable leadership and management experience in higher education in the UK.  In my most recent roles, I was Deputy Head of School of Civil Engineering and Construction and Head of Department of Construction and Surveying at Kingston University.

I am an Associate Professor with extensive experience in the development of academic teams and course portfolios. I led the accreditation of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in construction management and surveying by prominent professional bodies in the built environment.  More recently, I led the design and development of degree apprenticeship programmes in these fields.

I was awarded a PhD in Engineering Management by Brunel University and hold a Dipl.-Ing. in Mechanical Engineering from Aristotle University. I have several years' construction management experience in the education sector.

I am a Fellow of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) and member of the Association for Project Management (APM) and Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM). I am also a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (HEA - Advance HE).

I undertook research in Engineering and Construction Management and have a good track record of publications in reputable international refereed journals and international conferences. I hold editorial board and referee positions in five international journals.
