About Ian R. McAndrew
Dr. McAndrew has been working at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University - Worldwide since 2004, first as an adjunct then as an Associate Professor in 2009, tenured in 2013, and since 2016, a Full Professor of Aeronautics. He teaches subjects ranging from math, research, aeronautical science, safety, and physics, at both the undergraduate and graduate level.
Previously to Worldwide, Dr. McAndrew worked for 20 years at a University in London, England, where he ran the wind tunnel laboratories. He has extensive experience in research and participates in conferences and journals. Dr. McAndrew also provides Ph.D. supervision and examination and was a committee member for ERAU's first doctoral degree -- the Ph.D. in Aviation, from 2013 to 2017. Additionally, he has authored books and is currently writing two more.
Dr. McAndrew has taught all over the world -- from England to Iceland, Afghanistan to the Azores, and also Singapore. In his time at Worldwide, he has developed numerous online courses and teaches in class in the European region. He is a Fellow of The Royal Aeronautical Society and several other institutions. His reputation for research has resulted in him being the Editor of several International Journals and frequently is invited to give keynote speeches at conferences all over the world.
