Dr Ben Chong

I am always delighted to receive news that my former students have successfully secured jobs as engineers, researchers and entrepreneurs within the power and renewable energy sectors. Having hands-on industrial experience as a power engineer and a strong research experience in power electronics and renewable energy systems, I am honoured to be the Programme Manager and a key member of the team delivering this programme.

Our strong links with world leading power and electric drive companies enable us to deliver cutting-edge research activities. It is our top priority to translate our research excellence and industry-driven know-how into an excellent degree programme. We are determined to continue developing students aspirations to become skilled professional engineers, and we provide students with the knowledge of advanced topics in power engineering and the opportunities to build their analytical and practical skills.

As a Lecturer in Smart Grid Systems, I aim to inspire every student to develop their own potential and prepare them for their career. We all want to develop a new generation of successful power engineers. I was extremley proud when I was voted by students as the School's Best Lecturer.
