Dr Enda Crossin


I am the Acting Managing Partner of the Engineering Practice Academy at Swinburne University of Technology. I am a leader in the team designing and delivering the new Bachelor of Engineering Practice (Honours) degree, delivered through the Engineering Practice Academy.I am a Chartered Professional Engineer in areas of Mechanical Engineering, Leadership and Management, and Project Management.

I am an expert in materials engineering and environmental life cycle assessment with almost 20 years' experience in both industry and universities.I have led industry-based research projects for a range of sectors, including agriculture, forestry, renewable energy, packaging and the built environment, with over AUD$1.4 million dollars in research income. My current research interests focus on utilising life cycle assessment to understand the environmental performance of new material systems, and waste management systems. I have recently expanded my research profile to include engineering education, and I am the Research Director for the Engineering Practice Academy, in which I also lead the research theme ‘The Future of Engineering Practice’.

I am passionate about developing diverse professional engineers who are prepared for the changing demands of engineering work. I undertake this by linking my industry expertise, engineering fundamentals and practical engineering knowledge through project and practice-based work integrated learning. This underpins my teaching, mentoring and research supervision approach.
