Kevin Gowans

Project Officer

I have now worked at the Open University for nearly half of my life! So I am either boring, ultra conservative, had no career plan, or find the place nice to work in (or at least my part of it). The reality is probably a mix of all four. Starting out life in a group that designed and delivered manufacturing and business training, I then moved in to the then Faculty of Technology to continue the activity. A refocussing of effort saw me working on the creation of a rapid materials development facility within the postgraduate Manufacturing Programme. Times and direction change, the manufacturing programme was superceded by the Technology Management programme where I have since chaired 3 modules.

I do not undertake research activities.

Recent output
Recent publications, presentations, lectures, etc.

I previously chaired two Faculty postgraduate modules; T837 Systems engineering, T882 Supply chain innovation, strategy and management, and currently am presentation chair for T846 Technology strategy. I also have been an examiner for T842 The technology management project.
