Dr Roz Wyatt-Millington

Senior Lecturer

Roz joined Leeds Beckett University in January 2017 after over 14 years lecturing at the University of Bradford. Previous to that she was a postgraduate student and a research assistant at Bradford with a year spent in the USA as a guest researcher. She studied for her MEng in Electrical & Information Sciences at Queens' College, Cambridge.

She is Employability Lead for the Engineering Subject Group area as well as Course Leader for the BEng Electronic & Electrical Engineering and IET Academic Liaison. Her research interests are wide and varied although she started out in the wireless, mobile & satellite communications field and her PhD is in satellite communications. Currently she advises one PhD student with LSI. She has an interest in how technology can improve life - in particular health and well-being as well student experience. She also has a keen interest in the use of technology to support students with additional needs.

She is a chartered engineer, a member of the IET and the IEEE and a Fellow of the HEA as well as being an external examiner at University of Bedfordshire and Liverpool John Moore’s University. She is a regular contributor on the Professionals slot on BBC Radio Leeds breakfast show as a technology expert and talks to various BBC Local Radio stations on technology matters when they are in the news

Current Teaching

Currently Roz teaches on Maths for EEE ( Level 4), Advanced Maths for EEE (Level 5), Embedded Systems (Level 5) and Instrumentation & Control (Level 5) modules to EEE and Robotics & Automation students, along with Communication Systems (Level 5) to EEE students and Industrial Networks (Level 6) to Robotics & Automation and Engineering Management students. She also teaches on Computing Systems (Level 4) to Computer Science students and Fundamentals of Computing Systems and Networks to apprentices on the Digital Technology Solutions degree apprenticeship. She is also project coordinator for the Level 6 project for EEE, Robotics & Automation and Engineering Management students.

Research Interests

Roz is involved with the Erasmus funded IMAGE project which is looking at how to boost job prospects for students with autism who tend to have lower employment rates after graduation. The project aims to address this employment gap by focusing on the transition from higher education into the world of work, and the support universities can provide during this transition. She is involved with the work as employability lead for the Engineering group as well as due to personal experience with autism.

Technically Roz's major areas of interest are split between wireless communications, networking and embedded systems. She has a particular interest in the emerging use of embedded systems for enabling Smart systems and the Internet of Things. Over the years her research has been diverse including working on projects sponsored by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute, the European Space Agency and Inmarsat, the EU, the Indian Satellite Research Organisation and Innovate UK sponsored projects with Thales.
