Dr Milind Siddhpura has gained over 18+ years of substantial and internationally significant experience in mechanical engineering while working as an academic in top Australian and overseas universities. He has accomplished a PhD in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Western Australia (UWA) and has won many prestigious awards. He has published articles and served as a reviewer in high impact international journals. He has taught Mechanical Engineering as well as multi-disciplinary subjects and supervised engineering students at bachelor, master and doctorate levels.

In his current role as a Course Coordinator in engineering at EIT, he has been instrumental in developing, enhancing and quality control of the Bachelor and Master of Engineering courses in Mechanical and Civil Engineering disciplines at macroscopic and microscopic levels. He has significantly contributed to the development of a 'Doctorate in Engineering' course, which is becoming highly popular with professional engineers wanting to advance their careers to the next level. He is a passionate educator and an advocate for the 'Flipped classroom' approach and 'Active learning' principles. He promotes a cooperative learning environment in the classrooms using intelligent instructional strategies. He has expertise in face-to-face, blended and fully online delivery modes in engineering. He has expertise in the accreditation and compliance processes of the courses with TEQSA, Engineering Australia and a few international accreditation bodies.
