Dr David Butler


Design, Manufacture and Engineering Management

Personal statement

Prior to joining DMEM in June 2017, I spent the past 18 years as an Associate Professor at the Nanyang Technological University. In 2011, I was tasked with establishing the Advanced Remanufacturing & Technology Centre  (ARTC) which has now grown to over 180 staff. My focus at Strathclyde is the areas of Manufacturing Metrology & Processes and is a joint position with the National Physical Laboratory. 

In Singapore I supervised 8 PhD students, over 50 Masters disertations and approximately 160 final year projects. Apart from academic activities I was involved in establishing and advising the TEDxNTU Conference which recently held its seventh event in October 2017 with 1600 participants. From 2003 to 2015 I was the Chief Judge on the televised National Science Challenge - a competition aimed at 15 year olds to encourage their interest in STEM.
