Sweden’s Örebro University honours Professor John Andrews
Professor John Andrews, Professor of Infrastructure Asset Management has been awarded an honorary doctorate from the Faculty for Business, Science and Engineering at Örebro University in Sweden.
The conferment ceremony took place in early February. This was followed by a presentation where Prof Andrews discussed Infrastructure Maintenance Modelling and he went on to talk about Avoiding System Failures as part of the popular Science Series lectures.
Speaking about his latest achievement, Prof Andrews said, ‘The most pleasing aspect of being awarded an Honorary Doctorate at Örebro is that it is recognition from peers for the work that I have done.’
Professor Andrews is a leading expert in system reliability, maintainability modelling and optimisation. He is the Royal Academy of Engineering and Network Rail Professor of Asset Management in the Faculty of Engineering. He is also the Director of the Resilience Engineering Research Group.
Professor Andrews’ research focuses on methods for predicting system reliability and availability. His research includes optimal system design for safety critical systems and fault diagnostics techniques. It also includes the development of methods to predict optimal maintenance strategies for infrastructure and other technical systems.
Congratulations to Professor Andrews on this stellar achievement.
