Experienced leader and senior academic Professor Alex Stojcevski has joined RMIT Vietnam to head up its Centre of Technology.
With an extensive research portfolio and a significant track record in securing project funding, Professor Stojcevski’s career has included leadership and academic roles with universities across Australia, New Zealand and Denmark.
RMIT Vietnam President Professor Gael McDonald said the selection of Professor Stojcevski to lead the University’s Centre of Technology was in recognition of his significant leadership experience and academic background.
“Through Professor Stojcevski’s drive and vision, we’ll see a shift in the way engineering and IT disciplines are viewed by young individuals,” Professor McDonald said.
“He brings to RMIT Vietnam a focus on innovation which is underpinned by an overarching goal for Vietnam to be recognised as one of South East Asia’s technology hubs, along with Singapore and Hong Kong.
“Professor Stojcevski will lead this shift through an active and industry-connected centre, programs accredited by industry associations such as Engineers Australia as well as cutting-edge technologies in use across the centre’s programs.”
Before being appointed to RMIT Vietnam, Professor Stojcevski was Deputy Head of Deakin University’s School of Engineering and the Head of Electrical and Electronics Engineering.
Over his academic career, Professor Stojcevski has held senior appointments at Swinburne University and Victoria University in Australia.
He has also held external positions such as external Professor of Aalborg University and council member of the European Engineering Education Society.
Professor Stojcevski’s research interests are in sustainable energy systems including micro grid technologies, energy efficiency and electric vehicles, engineering education including project and problem based learning, educational leadership, and distance education.
He has published more than 200 book chapters, journals, and conference articles and has attracted more than AUD$63m in projects funding.
