Personal Profile

Andrew House brings a wide variety of teaching experience and training to his position as Lecturer in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.

Andrew completed his B.Eng (2002) and M.Eng (2004) in Computer Engineering at Memorial University. During the latter degree, he also completed Memorial's Graduate Program in Teaching (GPT) and gained experiences as a teaching assistant (TA) and per-course instructor.

Since 2004, Andrew has been pursuing his PhD at the University of Toronto (initially full-time, recently part-time) where he completed both the Advanced University Teaching Preparation certificate and the Prospective Professors in Training program (which included an entire course dedicated to teaching and learning in engineering). He also gained extensive experience as a TA and head TA during this period.

Upon returning to Newfoundland, Andrew gained additional teaching experience as a per-course instructor before taking a position as Software Team Lead for the Virtual Environments for Knowledge Mobilization project at Memorial University. This project focussed on the use of interactive simulation to provide safety training for offshore workings, and sparked Andrew's interest in the use of computer technology for education and training.

Andrew is registered as a Professional Engineer with PEG-NL.
