Professor Chris Cook has worked for Marconi Avionics in the UK as a project engineer, designing aerospace computing systems after receving his PhD in 1976, and later with GEC Australia as the Technical Manager of their Automation and Control Division, where he set up a group which designed and installed robot controlled automation systems for manufacturing applications. He then became the founding Managing Director of the Automation and Engineering Applications Centre Ltd., a non-profit company of the University of Wollongong, which built and installed automation and robotic systems for manufacturing companies around Australia. He became Professor of Electrical Engineering at the University of Woloingong in 1989 and was Head of School for 12 years before taking up his current position as Dean of Engineering.
