While the University of Adelaide was the first to establish a Sports Engineering degree programme it was RMIT that currently holds the first appointed a professor of Sport Engineering in Australia. In time I earn’t enough brownie points, such that Sports Engineering wasn’t such a giggle in the department up here at Griffith and made Associate Professor ( well the nearest equivalent of Principle research fellow… whatever that means) and established SABEL. So its with some excitement to see another institution recognising the important role engineering plays in sport with the creation of such a position at the university of Canberra. Its sure to be a winner given their close association with the Australian Institute of sport too! Could you be our next professor?
