Mark Wesseler BEng, MSc

Lecturer in Industrial Automation and Railway Signalling

Summary

Mark graduated with a Bachelor in Electronic and Electrical Engineering in the Netherlands. After graduating he moved to the UK and worked as an Electronics engineer and Systems engineer in Industry in the design and manufacturing of induction heating machines with customers as TRW, Cummins, Kawasaki, Pandrol and Balfour Beatty.

After this he joined the University of Sheffield Hallam as a senior technician within the Electronics and Electrical Engineering team and also started lecturing in automation and robotics leading to Industrial automation and other modules. In 2014 Mark received his MSc in Telecommunications and Electronic Engineering with a Children’s health monitoring system and a research article in advancing the use of LEDs to measure health signals from the skin.

  • About

    In 2004 Mark graduated with a Bachelor in Electronic and Electrical Engineering in the Netherlands, having spent half a year of my degree at the University of Teesside working on projects such as a bionic arm and a Stewart Platform.

    After graduating, he moved to the UK and worked as an Electronics engineer and Systems engineer in Industry for four years at an Induction Heating company Inductelec Ltd in Sheffield. Here he designed and manufactured machines for example the hardening of engine valves for TRW Thailand which are main suppliers of valves to Ford and Toyota engines, hardening and annealing of shafts of turbo charges for Cummins, brazing of contacts for Albright International, hydraulic piston brazing for Kawasaki UK and annealing bolts for SPS Technologies that supply to Boeing.

    In the rail industry, he has been involved in the manufacturing of Pandrol fasteners and Balfour Beatty rail forging for specialist junctions and crossings.

    In 2010 he joined Sheffield Hallam as a senior technician within the Electronics and Electrical Engineering team and also started lecturing in automation and robotics leading to Industrial automation and other modules.

    In 2014, he received his MSc in Telecommunications and Electronic Engineering with a Children’s health monitoring system and a research article in advancing the use of LEDs to measure health signals from the skin.
