At RMIT he held the positions of: Head, Department of Communication and Electronic Engineering; Dean, Faculty of Engineering; Deputy Director, Higher Education; Director and Vice Chancellor/President.

He was instrumental in the creation of RMIT International University Vietnam when Vice-Chancellor of RMIT. He has also been involved (post retirement) in providing consultancy to Universities in Vietnam in relation to their strategic development. He has recently completed writing a book titled “Engineering Education: Transformation and Innovation”, at the request of UNESCO.
His specialist teaching areas were in the rapidly changing field of electronic engineering, with microelectronics as his specialist research field. For most of his career he had management responsibilities which have spanned every aspect of university activity.
