School/Division:Engineering / Mechanical Engineering and Design
Dr Abas Hadawey is a senior lecturer in School of Engineering, with BSc, MSc and PhD in Mechanical Engineering. To strengthen and extend his teaching experience and to develop his research skills, Dr Hadawey completed a postgraduate programme in teaching and research (PgCHEP). Dr Hadawey is currently the course director of MSc Mechanical Engineering.
During his career, Dr Hadawey worked on a number of projects including design of standalone chilled food display cabinets for better performance and less energy consumption, tri-generation in the food industry, minimisation of emission from food retailing, application of PCM in low and medium temperature food product application for energy and CO2 emissions reduction.
In addition, Dr Hadawey is currently researching the impact of integrating technology in the teaching process. The aim of this project was to implement a technology in the teaching process, in order to create an environment that encourages students to participate in a module outside the classroom, and to improve students’ engagement or time spent on learning to achieve a better learning performance.
Dr Hadawey has over 15 years of experience in the Higher Education sector and is currently working at LSBU as a senior lecturer and course director for MSc Mechanical Engineering Course.
