Professor Alex Woltornist and the Erskine Fellowship
"The opportunity to benchmark and learn from other organizations is this incredible tool that we have to make ourselves better, and learn from others."
- Prof. Alex Woltornist
After visiting New Zealand 3 years ago with his wife, Alex instantly fell in love with the area. This is where he heard about the Erskine program at the University of Canterbury. This program allows 70 visiting international senior academics to lecture undergraduates and postgraduate students.
Alex refers to himself more as a technical advisor, his role is to interact with different student teams, as well as 4th year process design students. He commends this program for being hands on and truly allowing students the opportunity to learn through doing.
