Prof Mark Stanford PhD, BEng (Hons), CEng, MIET
From a technical apprenticeship and after 15 industrial experience, as a Senior Production Engineer at Cookson Precision Castings Ltd, Mark enrolled on a Manufacturing Engineering degree as a part-time student at the then Polytechnic, Wolverhampton. He graduated with first-class honours in 1992 and began his successful career at the University in that year. He also studied part-time for his PhD at the University and subsequently graduated in 2007.
Subsequently, Professor Mark Stanford is now a leading expert in the field of additive layer manufacturing a process by which digital 3D design data is used to build products layer by layer using materials that are in fine powder form. With this expertise in constant demand he works regularly with high-profile organisations, including Formula 1 racing teams, designing and producing parts that only a few years ago would not have been possible to produce by any means.
Mark has published widely in fields of additive layer manufacturing, laser sintering, materials behaviour and properties, structural integrity, and machining of metals in inert atmospheres of argon and nitrogen. He has presented at many international conferences, and has been successful in attracting significant research grants to the University. He has been, and continues to be, instrumental in establishing the University’s reputation for innovative product design and development.
