L aurie specializes in engineering education. His background is minerals processing.
Before coming to Wits in 1983 I had international industrial experience in mineral processing primarily in flotation, crushing and in process design. Since 2000 my teaching and research interests have shifted to engineering education particularly with respect to the problems of attrition, under-preparedness, and curriculum responsiveness in the first year, mainstream introduction to engineering course.
