Dr. Colin Fitzpatrick

Biography

Prof Colin Fitzpatrick is an Associate Professor in the Department of Electronic & Computer Engineering at the University of Limerick, IrelandHe is the course director for the BE/ME in Electronic & Computer Engineering where he teaches Sustainable Life Cycle Engineering, Electronics & the Environment, Energy Management and Active Circuit Design.His research interests cover a range of topics in the area of technology and sustainability including the Circular Economy, Electronics Repair & Reuse, WEEE Management, Electricity Demand Management, Conflict Minerals, Planned Obsolescence, & Environmental Sensing and he has published widely in these areas.He Chairs the National Standards Authority of Ireland Technical Committee 22 'Environmental Standardization for Electrical and Electronic Products and Systems' the national mirror committee for European and International Standardisation bodies in this area.He is conference Chair for the Product Lifetimes and the Environment (PLATE) virtual conference in 2021.

Research Interests

Optical fibre sensors for environmental appications.Life Cycle Engineering, Design for Environment, Energy, Demand Side Management, Integration of Renewables

Teaching Interests

Teaching interests include Analogue Circuit Design, Electronics and the Environment, Energy Management, Electrotechnology, The Engineer as a Professional & Sustainable Development. I use a wide variety of approaches including Problem Based Learning, Project Based Learning, Didactic & Laboratory Based. I utilise continuous assessment as much as possible and in many modules I use blogs to supplement class work.
