Dr Michael Clifford scoops Universitas 21 award

May 24th, 2016

Dr Michael Clifford, an associate professor in Engineering at The University of Nottingham, has been recognised by Universitas 21 for his long-term dedication to the furthering of international education.

The award for ‘Internationalisation’ recognises his impact and leadership in developing student learning both at home and in communities throughout the developing world.

In his field of mechanical engineering Dr Clifford has published more than 70 academic works, including teaching case studies on the use of appropriate technology in further education, whilst also integrating notions of sustainability and appropriate technology into the teaching of engineering at Nottingham to ensure students have a breadth of understanding of global challenges and their global responsibilities.

Professor Sir David Greenaway, Vice-Chancellor, said: “Mike’s contribution to internationalisation stems from the impact that he has had on students over a sustained period of time, both in terms of the challenges he sets in the classroom to ensure an understanding of the major challenges of technology, development and sustainability and the experience they have garnered working on projects that have had real impacts in the developing world. The activities that Mike has led have raised the awareness of the role that engineering and engineering students can play internationally in changing communities for the better.”
