School of Engineering and Digital Arts

After graduating in Physics at Imperial College, London, Les Walczowski moved to the Department of Electronics (now School of Engineering and Digital Arts) at Kent in 1975.He originally worked on mapping the low radio-frequency structure of the Supernova Remnant Cassiopeia A, which involved building antenna, radio frequency and correlation systems for remote outstations upto 20km away from the University.

He was awarded a PhD in 1981 and was a Senior Experimental Officer in the Digital Systems Group between 1985 and 1987. He became Lecturer in Electronics in 1987 and then Senior Lecturer in October 1992. He led the team that developed the ChipWise suite of VLSI design tools, which were distributed to over 50 universities in the UK and abroad. He pioneered the use of the Web for interactive Web based learning with the development of ChipWise tutor.

In 2000, he started the first of the Digital Media courses, the BSc in Multimedia Technology and Design.  His main interests are in the development of e-learning tools, mobile applications and web technology. He has published over 80 papers and received grants totalling more than £850,000 since May 1988.
