FACULTY OF ENGINEERING Professor of Industrial Systems Engineering Department of Mechanical Manufacturing Engineering Tel 868 645 3232 662 2002 ext. 83180 Fax 868 662 4414 E-mail PROF. WINSTON G. LEWIS Teaching Research and General Scholarship One of the major activities I have been involved with since joining the University more than 30 years ago is teaching. My teaching is multidisciplinary in the areas of Manufacturing Ergonomics Quality Management Systems and Facilities Design at both the undergraduate and graduate levels in the Depart- ment of Mechanical Manufacturing Engineering at The Univer- sity of the West IndiesSt.Augustine. I am responsible for prepar- ing all aspects of the courses I teach from the syllabus to hand- outs and examinations supervising projects and research work assessing work and providing feedback monitoring students progress during the semester and counseling students with difficulties and tutoring and mentoring them. AlsoI have super- vised more than 100 final year undergraduate engineering projects and another 58 MSc final projects. I am also involved in the supervision of post-graduate research work at both the MPhil and PhD levels. I have super- vised seven graduate research students five at the MPhil level and two at the PhD level. Four of these students have success- fully completed their research studies including three MPhil candidates and one PhD candidate. I am presently supervising one PhD candidate and two MPhil candidates. The information generated from these research activities has been disseminated to local engineers and related professionals in the industrialmanufacturing sectors through conferences and workshops. To expand on this success efforts are presently being made to establish more research links both within and outside of the region. In recognition of my contributions to the advancement of teaching and learning I was awarded the UWIGuardian Life of the Caribbean Premium Teaching Award in 2004and I was The UWIs nominee for the Association of Atlantic Universities Teaching Award in 2005. Emphasis is also placed on research output where I have an H-index of 12 which is considered excellent for Engineering at the stage that I am at in my career. I believe that research should be both academicpure and applied particularly to the regional needs. Also multi-disciplinary teams of researchers should be working on problems since real world problems usually span many disciplines. In all I have authoredco- authored 87 academic papers 40 of which have been published in peer reviewed academic journals with a further one accepted for publication and another under review. The other 47 papers have been presented at national regional and international conferences. Out of the 40 journal publications 28 have been published in highly reputable international journals while another 12 have been published in national and regional journals including eight in the West Indian Journal of Engineering WIJE. I was a Co-editor of the Proceedings of the 7th Annual Technical Conference ATC of the Association of Professional Engineering of Trinidad Tobago. I have been the Vice Chairman of the WIJE Editorial Sub-Committee since 2010 and I am also a member of the editorial committee of WIJE. My research and development work is in the areas of metal- lurgical industrial engineering sheet metal forming manufac- ture of the steelpan musical instrument applied ergonomics and workplace designengineering quality management systems and nano-technology. This work was highlighted in 60 Under 60 a special 60th Anniversary commemorative edition of UWIs Pelican Magazine and other UWI publications. In October 2008 I was invited by the United Nations to be a policytechnical advisor on the UN Millennium Project in the areas of engineering and innovation and in November 2014 the Trinidad and Tobago Bureau of Standards honoured me with an award for Outstanding Commitment and Service to the writing of National Standards. Administration and Leadership I have served as the Head of the Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering for six years 2003 to 2009. In this capacity I assumed a leadership role in curriculum redesign and development in the department. I was also the Chairman of the Departmental Committee on Teaching and Learning for the implementation of the Universitys Strategic Plan 2007-2012 and the Chairman of the Quality Unit which I established in the department. One of the major tasks of the Teaching and Learning committee was the upgraderedesign of the curriculum of each of the three undergraduate programmes and the four MSc programmes in the department. This is an on-going exercise which requires the involvement of all members of academic staff in the department. To-date the curriculum redesign exercise has been successful resulting in the seven programmes in the department being accredited for the full period of five years by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers U.K. These include the three BSc Honours programmes and the four MSc programmes. I was also involved in the development of a new MSc programme in Engineering Asset Management. This is a very successful programme which has also been accredited. As Head of Depart- ment I was responsible for the preparation of the departments 76
