Jonathan Fanning
Lecturer (Teaching & Scholarship) in Strategy, Employability and Skills



I gained my B.Sc in Information Technology from the Polytechnic of Wales, and an MSc from the Department of Instrumentation and Analytical Science (DIAS), UMIST, which has now merged with the Victoria University of Manchester to form the University of Manchester. After this I completed a part time Post Graduate Management Diploma at Manchester School of Management, also part of UMIST, while researching wet end retention in Paper Machines for English China Clay International, and Signal Processing for Micro-Assay Equipment. I then undertook a PGCE for Post Compulsory Education and Training at the University of Huddersfield.

I worked as an Instrumentation & Control engineer for Siemens while out of academia and I am a Member of the Institute of Engineers and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
