2017: The winner is...

Dr Peter Fitch, Department of Earth Science & Engineering

Lorraine Craig/ Peter Fitch

Pete is like no other teacher I have ever had. When I made the transition from undergraduate physics to postgraduate petroleum engineering, I was sceptical about the lack of personal tutor and doubted whether the teaching would be as engaging as I had before. Peter Fitch has cast any doubt I had about the teaching to one side and has shown every attribute of an excellent teacher.
