Dr Joel Kennedy is an Assistant Professor at UOWD’s Faculty of Computer Science and Engineering.
With prior experience as an Associate Lecturer, Tutor and Lab Demonstrator at the University of Wollongong, Australia and as a Cadet Engineer with Country Energy, Australia, Dr Kennedy is a firm believer that engineering education should draw comparisons between theory and experience. Students in his classes are encouraged to apply the concepts to simulated environments in order to gain a visual understanding of the issues faced by industry, with students collaborating constructively on projects related to concepts that are linked with technology that students are familiar with.
Dr Kennedy is a member of the Institute of Electrical Engineers (IEEE) and PES and has had research work published in a number of conference proceedings, including the Power Engineering Society General Meeting (2012), IEEE Energy Con (2014) and AUPEC (2014).
