Associate Professor Johan Potgieter

Associate Professor

School of Engineering and Advanced Technology

My current research interests are mainly in areas of Additive Manufacturing and advanced mechatronics/robotics with applications in medicine and automotive related areas. I have been an avid user of additive manufacturing since the mid-90s and is passionate about the potential it offers for innovation and how it allows small businesses to much more easily reach the world market. I have a well established reputation for his work in educational robotics and have been inducted into the World Robotics Education and Competition (REC) Foundation Hall of Fame. I am currently conducting consulting research with HIEFF Engine and Chrysler in Detroit.

I am an Associate Professor in Mechatronics, Additive Manufacturing and Robotics in the School of Engineering and Advanced Technology at Massey University (Auckland).  I received my BSc. MSc. and PhD at the University of Natal, South Africa, in the areas of Mechanical Engineering, Robotics, Mechatronics and Advanced Manufacturing.
