Abstract

This book reflects Professor Duffy’s supervisory style in the context of Engineering Design Research. It is organised as follows: In section one several books regarding PhD guidance are reviewed to provide a general background to guide students. Section two presents the professor’s style of supervision and concepts, which include: an analogy of the high-level process underlined in a PhD research project, the challenges the researcher will encounter when undergoing the process and a set of tools Professor Duffy commonly uses during his supervision. Finally, section three provides views from the students’ perspective, particularly of the lessons learnt under his supervision style.
