Hylton Newsletter

I was born and raised in Indianapolis, Indiana.  I received BS and MS degrees in Mechanical Engineering from Indiana schools and went to work in the aerospace industry with Alison Gas Turbines.  Alison was later purchased by Rolls-Royce.  My most significant positions were Manager of Dynamics and Vibrations, Chief Design Engineer for the Comanche helicopter propulsion system, and Integration Manager for the Joint Strike Fighter.  I left industry after 20 years and joined Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI).  I added a second MS degree in Applied Mathematics and a Doctorate in Education.  I was offered the opportunity to begin an entirely new education program, in Motorsports Engineering, and created both BS and MS degrees from a blank sheet of paper to a full degree program with graduates.  During my time with the university, I had the opportunity to visit Scotland to present a technical paper at an international engineering conference.  My wife and I fell in love with Scotland from our first day in the Highlands.  We visited Scotland every year on holiday, and then in 2015 I was offered a Fulbright Visiting Scholar exchange to the University of Lancaster for 8 months.  During that time, Wendy and I found it quite easy to live in the UK.  So when North Highland College of the University of the Highlands and Islands offered me the position of Curriculum Leader for Mechanical Engineering, it was an easy decision.

Great newsletter!  What a coincidence - our newsletter for June did a bit on Hadrian's wall!  This is a terrific follow-up.  Do you mind if I send it out to our members? I attached our June newsletter for your reference.  Cheers.  Eileen
