Robot creating engineer wins a top tertiary teaching award

From Nine To Noon, 9:34 am on 19 August 2015

Dale Carnegie is the head of Victoria University's School of Engineering and Computer Science. Last week he was given the 2015 Ako Aotearoa Tertiary Teaching Excellence award for his engaging teaching style and what students described as "infectious enthusiasm".

Professor Carnegie has long promoted engineering as a career. He is currently working on a robot prototype for use in search and rescue due to its ability to move over difficult terrain.

He talks with Kathryn Ryan.
