Prof Ghanim Putrus


Department: Mathematics, Physics and Electrical Engineering

Ghanim -putrus -2Ghanim Putrus is Professor of Electrical Power Engineering and is the Director of Learning and Teaching at Northumbria. He, previously, was the departmental Business and Engagement Champion (2013-2016),the leader of the MSc Electrical Power Engineering programme (2005-2014) and the Director of training programmes for industry, short courses (1996-2010).


I have over 25 years of experience working in the electrical power engineering area with over 170 publications, including one patent, and has given several invited talks at national and international events. I have taken on several responsibilities and roles during my previous and current employments. In all of these, I always played an active role in exercising my duties and responsibilities and made significant contribution to the development of my Department/Faculty/University and profession.


I have conducted several research projects and consultancies for industry and I am closely involved in IET professional activities.
