Brian Henderson

About Me

Brian has recently been awarded a visiting professorship from the Royal Academy of Engineering in recognition of his work in the composites sector over a number of years.

Having worked at senior levels in industry for many years Brian moved to an academic research position at the University of Bolton and was awarded his Phd in Damage Tolerance of quasi Isotropic Structures from the University of Manchester in 2004. During this time Brian was a consultant specialist to ACG and several formula 1 teams in the field of composite design, manufacture and experimental destructive evaluation of composites and NDT testing.

As a professional teacher Brian has an extensive teaching and training portfolio, his enthusiasm and ability to make composite material subject accessible and understandable and his friendly approach have enabled him to influence sector skills councils and deliver composite training to tier 1 deference and civil aviation teams as well as independent learners of all ages.
